A completely unique wine from Pouilly Fumé. Alexandre Bain picks later than most vignerons in the region, giving his Sauvignons a darker colour and ripe fruit notes, along with a rich minerality, freshness and aromatic notes. He is dedicated to farming biodynamically, and yields are low, further adding to the complexity of the wine. Give this wine some time after opening.
Due to the original character of his wines, and his refusal to manipulate his wines to fit the mould, some of Alexandre Bain's vintages have been rejected by the Pouilly Fumé appelation. The 2019 vintage is therefore labelled Vin de France.
