  • Tasting Note: Clean, crisp Sauvignon Blanc from the grape's Loire home, this is scented with fresh grass, limestone and citrus and both stone and fruit follow the wine onto the tongue.
  • Food Matching: The Pouilly Fume acute; Château Favray goes particularly well with shellfish, grilled and smoked fish, white meats, asparagus, and cheese, notably goat cheese.
  • Unique Selling Point: Château Favray was distinguished by Françoise de la Rivière, lady-in-waiting of Queen Margot, the wife of Henri IV.It is often maintained that the world’s most delectable Sauvignon Blanc comes from Pouilly Fumé. Favray's liveliness is fused with ripe citrus fruits and remarkable elegance.
  • Vineyard: It is no accident that the best Sauvignon wines come from the Pouilly Sur Loire region ! The Sauvignon Blanc grape variety finds a climatic balance in these terroirs bringing it to sublime expression. Too much heat burns the Sauvignon grape and its aromas become neutral. Without enough sun, ripeness is not reached and vegetal tones jarringly dominate. Pouilly’s continental climate is sufficiently cool and yet temperate thanks to the warmth of the Loire River bringing roundness and richness. Nature’s subtle delicateness has no equal anywhere else. Vines are planted at an altitude of 190m a.s.l on lLimestone calcareous soil. The age of vines is 20 years and they aretrained with the simple Guyot system.
  • Vinification: Vinification is in stainless steel with controlled temperature. Traditionally the wine does not make any malolactic fermentation. Bottling only starts from July following the harvest.
