Chablis, Sancerre & Pouilly-Fumé - Domaines Fourrey and Tinel-Blondelet
As the temperatures soar, why not cool down with these classic French whites from our favourite family-owned estates of the Loire and Chablis and SAVE 10%.
Annick Tinel-Blondelet has over 400 years of winemaking in her family. She took over the Estate from her parents, Camille & Fernand, in 1983, and now represents the 12th generation of winegrowers in the family, working the estate with her sister Agnès. Situated beside the old Roman road above the east bank of the Loire river, Tinel-Blondelet's vineyards are sited on slopes of Kimmeridgian marl as found in the best vineyards of Chablis.
Her estate has been classified with the highest of the three available certifications for environmental status, has wonderful soils, which impart the world-renowned mineral nuances and complexity to their wines, while great fruit concentration is derived from the optimal ripeness of the grapes grown on the 35-year old vines that bask on the south-facing slopes.
Jean-Luc Fourrey and his sister Marie are 4th generation Chablis growers, emerging in just over a decade as one of the region's finest estates renowned for their stunning 1er and Grand Crus, not to mention their great value Pinot Noir which can be enjoyed slightly chilled.
"The young Jean-Luc Fourrey continues to make important strides in quality....I believe we will see further improvement in the years to come." Burghound.com
