Moreux Pouilly-Fume 'La Loge Aux Moines'
Patrice Moreux owns 20 hectares vineyard in the Pouilly Fume appellation in the Loire Valley and is the unique owner of “La Loge aux Moines” parcel.
The Loge aux Moines vineyard started to be grown in the 11th century by Benedictine monks and used to welcoming pilgrims as Pouilly Fume was located on the way to Saint Jacques de Compostelle.
This has a plump edge, with a brioche notes wrapped around a core of citrus oil, grapefruit pulp and white peach. A nice smoky hint weaves through the creamy finish. Alluring. Drink now through 2014.
