Pouilly-sur-Loire produces one of the greatest Sauvignon Blancs in the world. Régis’ vineyards sit at 750 feet, surrounded by hills on the far east of the Loire River, and centered proudly on the prized limestone and clay of the Kimmeridgian chain. The scattered flint in these vineyards imbues the wines with a character quite distinctive from the neighboring village of Sancerre. In the eloquent words of KLWM Store Manager, Steve Waters, “You couldn’t ask for a cleaner, fresher, flintier, or truer expression of Sauvignon Blanc. Its mouth-watering acidity, depth of flavor, and fleshy texture will have you racing back for more.”
Régis Minet is a passionate Loire valley vigneron, taking over the work his grandfather began in the mid 20th century. The estate now comprises 11 hectares of vines, creating flinty, terroir-driven Sauvignon Blanc based wines. The 2017 ‘VV’ ferments natively and ages for six months on fine lees in steel, creating a fleshy, mineral-driven wine full of mouthwatering acidity and bright citrus notes. Pair with chilled seafood & fresh green salads.
