Michot Pouilly-Fumé VV 2021

$22

Sancerre is the most famous place for this wine, and there the fruit dominates. Just up the river a few kilometers, the village of Pouilly Fumé produces very similar wine at a better price.

Michot’s old vine Pouilly-Fumé Cuvée Sainte Clara 2021, which comes from a plot planted in the 1940s, offers more complexity. The wine is a bit more focused and linear, with a little more freshness and greater length on the palate. We like to pair it with shellfish cooked simply, whether lobster or steamer clams with drawn butter, or mussels steamed with shallots, garlic and parsley.
