Episode 3: Two Grape Varieties in Pouilly-sur-Loire

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.

I call myself Rebecca Wine on social media mainly because my name is so long, and wine synthesizes who I am. Since the late 90'ies, my world has revolved around wine in every moment. From what I do for a living to who I ended up marrying. From the outside, I bet it seems a little boring to have just one obsession, but it's so strong that there's no room for anything else (except of course my babies).
