We always talk about Sancerre so much, I often forget about the other Sauvignon Blanc across the Loire River, Pouilly-Fume. Domaine Tabordet’s "Le Champs des Vignes" right out of the glass gives you that special quality that you find in Pouilly Fume -- flint! The flint gives way to citrus peel, tropical fruit and white floral notes. What I love about Pouilly-Fume is that it has more palate weight than most other Sauvignon Blancs, Sancerre included. The spot on stone fruit and chalky notes on the tongue keep you reaching for more. The mouth is long, fruity and dense. A perfect match for your shellfish, goat-cheese or just sitting out on the deck watching the world go by!
