Critic Reviews
91 points, Wine Enthusiast
“This wine comes from the heart of Pouilly Fumé, a land of chalk and flint. The wine reflects this terroir in its mineral texture, steely edge and strongly herbal, gooseberry character. It is now mature and ready to drink.”

A-, VinePair
“Angular and focused with sharp notes of lemon zest and gooseberries making a hard line for your olfactory. Following up just behind are subtle aromas of nettles, lime oil, and a hint of basil with an earthy floral hawthorn tinge. The palate is clean and balanced with a slight weight; just enough to keep this very aromatic wine in balance.”

90 points, Wine Spectator
“A pure, precise version, with ruby grapefruit, clementine and tarragon flavors, while mineral accents streak through, combining with the vibrant acidity to give this energy. Flint and gooseberry hints emerge on the finish.”

About The Winery
The vineyards of Domaine des Berthiers are situated in the hamlet of Berthiers, in the village of Saint-Andelain. The estate was owned by one of the key driving personalities of the Pouilly-Fumé region, Jean-Claude Dagueneau. When his health became more of an issue to run the vineyards, the Domaine became part of Domaine Fournier. The Pouilly-Fumé vineyards of Domaine des Berthiers are located on the siliceous hillside south west alongside the Loire river facing the vineyards of Sancerre.

The Fournier family has been making wine for many generations and their estate holdings have grown from 5 acres in 1950 to almost 150 acres today, divided over the appellations of Sancerre, Pouilly-Fumé, Menetou-Salon. The Pouilly-Fumé wines produced by Domaine des Berthiers are full-bodied and exhibit the rich, spicy and smoky nuances of the Sauvignon Blanc varietal.
