More info

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 using organic methods and is in conversion to organic certification. Pesticides and fertilisers are not used, instead tilling of the soil reduces the need for weed killers, and certain parcels are left with grass cover to limit the vigour of the vines. De-leafing 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'. This 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.

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 neutral yeasts. The wine was aged for six months on its lees, prior to being bottled.

Domaine Tabordet

Run by Pascal and Marie-Laure together with their son Marius, Domaine Tabordet is a 19 hectare estate, including five hectares in Sancerre and fourteen 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 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.
