Dom. de Bel Air 2023 Pouilly Fume 'Cuvee Riquette'

“Cuvée Riquette” derives from parcels of old vines planted in “Caillottes” (clay and limestone) and represents the third different wine we have bought from this admirable woman-run estate. All the virtues of the estate wine, with a little extra flair and concentration.The 2023 is a triumph of poise and restraint in a much warmer vintage.

Vine Training
We work daily in our vines which allows a strict and sensible control of the grapes and their development. From pruning to harvest, with de-budding or clearing in between if necessary, we look forward to our common and most important aim : quality. It means that we use all our energy to specify quality in all that we do, that is to say our work, our methods and our final product, Pouilly Fumé.
