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.

Attractively aromatic, rich dry Sauvignon showing the fruit character of fully ripe grapes. Exotic fruits in abundance on the nose and just a hint of mint. On the palate its fresh and tangy and the finish is fruity and moreish. The obvious accompaniment to asparagus with hollandaise but should be tried with goats cheese and works well with tuna dishes.

Domaine Pelle Menetou Salon Morogues 2018

This wine has a subtle, pure nose with aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits. The taste is racy and crystalline, clear with a citrus fruit taste initially followed by a saline and mineral finish. Nothing overly exuberant: just clarity and precision.

Alpha Zeta Garganega 2019

Relatively low fermentation temperatures help preserve the fresh fruit character of the grapes. 20% was fermented in large format oak. The wine was held in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks until bottling. Clear, pale straw in colour with fresh, delicate perfumes of stoned fruit, honeysuckle and almond blossom. On the palate, it is fresh but has surprising depth and a lovely peachy fruit character. A lively, lemonyzest finish offsets the ripe fruit on the palate.

Aromo Viognier 2021

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.

Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling 2020

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.
