Story

Story

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. 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 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 after over a decade between the Americas and South Africa. Joined by his South African partner Ilse. With Pascal Kerbiquet, his mentor, prophet of Bio and Pygmalion of biodynamics, he found his haven in Bouchot… Plantations of vines, renovation of the cellar, purchases of tuns and amphorae, new orange vintage, makeover of the skins … To discover and follow closely.

James Suckling – 93 points

Ripe citrus fruit, dried apricot and floral character, enriched by a dense layer of smooth minerals on the nose and palate. Medium-bodied with great poise and balance, creating an intense yet at the same time relaxed mouthfeel and a long finish. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Classy. Drink now.
