Domaine Les Poete Reuilly Blanc Orphée les Poëte, Sauvignon Blanc 2016
Domaine des Poëte is a hidden gem producer of exceptional Sauvignon Blanc in the lesser known Loire Valley appellations of Reuilly and Quincy. This is a wonderfully ripe, exotic and deeply complex wine with a wonderful array of citrus-driven flavours and tropical fruit inflections. Exhibiting perfect harmony between richness of fruit, mineral tension and intriguing bittersweet notes, this is a brilliantly food friendly wine.
'Guillaume Sorbe is one of the genuine stars of the Loire Valley, his eclectic and precise wines receiving regular acclaim and considered the Haute Couture of the region. Starting in 2007, his small-scale, artisanal and biodynamic cultivation has made the small volumes he produces highly sought after. Domaine Les Poëte today comprises 25 small cultivation lots with a total area of just over four hectares, each individual location vinified separately.Guillaume Sorbe produces wines in three of the Loire Valley's appellations: Reuilly, Touraine and Quincy. In Quincy, he makes white wine from Sauvignon Blanc, which grows on light soils of sand and gravel. He grows also some incredible Pinot Noir and we had a small allocation of that. Guillaume’s ethos – “moins mais mieux” – less but better.'
