Description

Domaine de Bel Air Pouilly Fume

Domaine de Bel Air Pouilly Fume is pale lemon, yellow in colour, the nose is fresh with lively citrus fruit notes and grass.

Domaine de Bel Air Pouilly Fume has a firm, mineral palate has excellent balance of fine acidity with intense lemon, flint and pear flavours and a long crisp finish, it is medium to full-bodied.

Domaine de Bel Air has been in the Mauroy family for at least 10 generations, and is now producing a structured yet generous Pouilly-Fume that is among the best in the appellation.

Wine growers since 1635 and thirteen generations, in the heart of the Pouilly vineyard

 Difficult to know before that by the parish archives, unfortunately disparate. The vineyard was then very fragmented, divided between many owners, renting or exploiting their own vineyards.

The plots were very small as evidenced by the notarial acts. But going up the Sadon lineal family (maiden name of our grandmother Raymonde), we can identify a Pierre Sadon, “vigneron” in 1635 in the parish of Pouilly.

Then five successive generations of Sadon mentioned “vigneron à Pouilly” in parish and municipal archives.
In the early 1800, there are two generations of Sadon both “vignerons” and “pontonniers” (that is to say “passeur” de Loire) in the hamlet of Charenton, village of Pouilly. http://www.bel-air-pouilly.com/en/pages/historique/
Our great-great grandfather, Louis Sadon, left Charenton to settle vigneron in le Bouchot in the late nineteenth century when he married Marie Chollet. She herself inherited some of her parents’ various bits of vines. Together they created the current Domaine de Bel Air.
Their only son André Sadon  nicknamed “Riquette”, born in 1900, was a great precursor to the forefront of new technology of the time (tying …). He made great improvements to the domaine.
He initiated his son in law Lucien Mauroyand daughter Raymonde as good winemakers.
The 1940 years were marked by war and occupation and the 50s were painful for the vineyard, especially in le Bouchot, facing south and east that had to suffer almost annually frost or hail.
It took a lot of courage and perseverance to survive and then remain faithful to an exciting job but subject to the vagaries of nature.

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2012

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon. The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2019

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.

Aromo Viognier 2018

Full bodied white with a rich background of savoury notes, a very aromatic peach and mayblossom fruit character, but without any sweetness. No oak and fresh fruit makes this wine a real winner. The Aromo wines have a great charm and appeal and this is no exception.
