Food Pairing Guide This wine has real depth of flavour with herbal notes and freshness will be a wonderful accompaniment to salmon served with a light cream and dill sauce. The flinty notes of the wine will also make grilled seafood a perfect pairing.
Terroir Soils are of shell-rich, flinty clay from the Kimmeridgian period, located on the Saint-Andelain hill, overlooking the Loire

Pouilly-Fumé 'Premier Millisime' is the top cuvée from Bouchié-Chatellier sourced from selected grapes grown on an outcrop of silex soil. Already one of France's most illustrious appellations, this particular bottle is another level! Ripe, herbaceous aromas of nettle and dill and balanced by concentrated green apples, pear and and crisp citrus freshness. This wine undergoes a period of extended skin contact which adds a little texture and richness. This makes it perfect for something like Salmon with a creamy dill sauce. Will certainly go down a treat if you open it now, but it would also benefit from ageing for 4-5 years.

Made from selected parcels of old-vine grapes, their better exposure to sunlight gives this wine greater concentration and complexity. The Bouchié family was the first to plant vines on the hill of Saint-Andelain, seeing the potential of its soil, and the vineyards back onto those of Didier Daguenau. The grapes were gravity fed into the progressive pneumatic press. There was static must settling, skin maceration and thermo-regulated fermentation in stainless steel for 3 weeks to preserve aromatics and fruit expression. Selected tanks were kept on their fine lees after blending.
