Tasting note:Exclusively from their 1955 plantings, fermented in and aged in barrel with some skin contact too. Fantastic weight and concentration on the nose, lush and tangy yellow plums, chalky notes, white pepper and greengages. Both subtle and extremely expressive and engaging, with lemon-limey fruit and hints of stones. Very ageworthy too.

Located on the right bank of the Loire river, the Domaine du Bouchot was the first area certified organic farming AOP Pouilly Fumé in 2009. Its 10 hectares of vines from the Sauvignon grape are planted on the south-west side of the hill from the village of Saint Andelain, the soils are mainly clay and limestone from the Kimmeridgian era. The configuration of the estate, isolated in the center of its vineyards, allows a very precise biodynamic work, the vinifications that follow are done with a very little intervention and the wines produced express the finesse of a preserved terroir.
2018 marks the arrival of Antoine Gouffier, young winemaker and child of the village, who takes over from the Kerbiquet family with great energy. By going around the world, this backpacker decided, like Ulysses, to return home. After 12 years between New York, California, Argentina, Africa and the Middle East, between trade, commerce and catering, he still had to settle in an area. His young wife helped him there. Soon she will be part of the affair. With Pascal Kerbiquet, his mentor, prophet of Bio and Pygmalion of biodynamics, he found his haven in Bouchot: the semi-solitude of the craftsman for a fan of discoveries...
