The RSJ has recently started to import and list this Pouilly-Fumé from Sébastien Treuillet. Sébastien is a small producer from near Tracy-sur-Loire, who apparently has just three hectares of vines – some in the PF appellation as well as some in the nearby Coteaux-du-Giennois.
We met him because he shares a stand at the Salon des Vins de Loire with the Champaults our Sancerre suppliers.
The 2010 is best not drunk too chilled otherwise its weight and length will be hidden. It has a complex and aromatic nose – some gooseberry, grapefruit and other ripe citric notes – allied with weight and length. Certainly a well-made Pouilly-Fumé.
I plan to be in Sancerre/Pouilly towards the end of August, so may well get the opportunity to visit Sébastien Treuillet then.
Address: 12 Route de Boisfleury, Fontenille, 58150 Tracy-sur-Loire.
