Domaine Tabordet Pouilly Fumé 2019

The Domaine Tabordet Pouilly Fume Laurier is a classic Pouilly Fumé showing green apple and citrus notes combined with white flowers finishing on a long mineral and flinty note.

Producer Note - Run by Pascal and Marie-Laure together with their son Marius, Domaine Tabordet is a 19 hectare estate, including five hectares in Sancerre and 14 in Pouilly-Fumé. The domain is very much a family business, run in a traditional spirit, but using the latest winemaking technology. The vineyards are managed with the utmost respect for the sustainability and biodiversity. The resulting wines are a true reflection of the diverse terroirs which make up their estate showing characteristic flinty flavours, with good weight and a full body.

Vintage - The winter was mild, with cold spells in January. Spring was marked by frost, which affected some vines. The summer warmed up and flowering took place under good weather conditions. The summer remained warm and was very dry; as a result the vines stared to get depleted of water. Thankfully a significant storm took place at the end of July, bringing beneficial rainwater. An early harvest, starting on 18th September with grapes having reached good maturity levels and excellent quality.

Vineyard - The vineyard is situated in the heart of the Pouilly Fumé appellation on the right bank of the Loire River. The vines are trained according to the Guyot method. The vineyard is carefully cultivated throughout the year with debudding of the vines, tilling of the soil to reduce the need for weed killers and certain parcels are left with grass cover to limit the vigour of the vines. Deleafing takes place at the end of June. The soil in the vineyard is made up of Kimmeridgian marl, which is a chalky clay, flint and pebbly limestone, known locally as "caillottes". The soil imparts the distinctive mineral and flinty characteristics to the wine. The harvest takes place between mid September and mid-October when the grapes have reached optimal maturity.

Winemaking - The grapes were very gently pressed by a pneumatic press, to avoid any stalky flavours. The juice was then left to settle so it was as clear as possible, racked and then fermented in temperature controlled tanks with the use of neutral yeasts. The wine was aged for six months on its lees, prior to being bottled.

Tasting Note - A classic Pouilly Fumé showing minerality complemented by notes of exotic fruits, peach, apricot, with citrus and spicy undertones. The palate is powerful and refreshing and delivers a lingering finale, with a dash of passionfruit on the finish.

Serving Suggestion - A great apéritif which is also delicious with fish and seafood.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
