Today you can virtually experience 2 whites from the Loire valley with Pierre Gouttenoire, French winemaker and wine lover. See how 2 different grapes work in the same terroir.
In the Centre Loire valley surges amidst the vineyards a village called Pouilly-sur-Loire. In this area you’ll find two grapes giving origin to different AOCs. The first, taking its name from the village, Pouilly-sur-Loire AOC is made with the grape Chasselas (which you may have heard of from Switzerland), and the more well-known Pouilly-Fumé AOC, famous for its smoky style of Sauvignon Blanc.
