Pouilly - Fumé

Kiméride

Grape variety: 100% Sauvignon blanc grape variety is used.

 

Terroirs:

"Kiméride" comes from Kimmeridgian, time of the geological formation of this soil. This cuvee  is a parcel selection of this kimmeridgian limestone soil, with fossils (ammonites, small oysters...)

 

 We produce this cuvee only with the best vintages. We exclude from this cuvee the grapes from young vines.
 

Richness, concentration, elegance and intense aromas of ripe fruit characterize this Pouilly-Fumé which expresses the quintessence of Sauvignon blanc.

 

Environment:

our wines are certified Terra Vitis (for respect of nature, Man and wines) and Hight Environmental Value (for respect of biodiversity and reduction of inputs).

 

 

Winemaking:

- fermentation at regulated temperature

- maturing on fine lees, with stirring of these lees for several months, in stainless steel tanks.

Food-wine matches:

KIMERIDE is fully appreciated as an aperitif. It goes wonderfully well with crustaceans, fish (in sauce, smoked ...), poultry, rabbit, veal blanquette, tender cheeses ...

Tasting :

Kiméride 2017:

This cuvée from Kimmeridgian terroirs immediately reveals a outstanding olfactory complexity: the floral notes (honeysuckle, acacia) are followed by honeyed nuances on a chalky and lemony background. Ample and dense, the mouth unfolds in roundness and softness. Its long finish confirms the finesse of the aromatic palette.

A high class Pouilly-Fumé.

KIMERIDE 2015 or previously named "Prestige des Fines Caillottes":

Rich, the olfaction reveals superb fruity (lychee, passion fruit, yellow peach, candied fruit), floral and mineral scents. Silky and rich, the mouth retains all its freshness. This is a harmonious, very structured, aromatic and elegant wine.
