This is called ""Petit"" Fumé but it is anything but a ""petit vin"". This comes as no surprise, as Sebastien Redde, the winemaker, is a descendant of 14 generations of wine growers, which takes us back to 1630!

On the nose you get white fruits and fresh herb and floral notes, and on the palate you get the classic aromas of wet stone, citrus fruits and light floral notes. This wine is all about freshness. Try it with a typical French goats cheese salad and you will immediately feel like you're in France, sitting on a chair outside in a garden full of peach trees, on a sunny but fresh spring afternoon.

You might even start to speak French fluently without even noticing, and say something like: ""Petit? Ah non, certainement pas! Ce Petit Fumé est un "grand” vin!"" You wouldn't even know what you were saying but you would be sure that it made sense...
The Redde family have been wine growers for 14 generations. The knowledge passed from father to son has given them a detailed understanding of their vineyards and allows them to create expressive and highly individual wines. Sebastien Redde, the winemaker, decided to stay on in the vineyard so that the wine-growing profession, which in this region used to be reserved for monks, would continue to flourish. His family's estate Domaine La Moynerie, make an impressive array of single vineyard cuvées in the Pouilly Fumé appellation. Sebastien Redde joined the domaine in 2003 and from the outset has worked tirelessly to produce wines that express both grape variety and terroir. Having replanted a parcel of Sauvignon Blanc in 2004 on flinty, limestone soil, his efforts have borne spectacular results. These vines are now producing quintessential Pouilly Fumé. Vinified in stainless steel and aged on lees for 3 months, this wine encapsulates the zesty, bright charm of youthful Sauvignon Blanc and the textured, smoky concentration of classic Pouilly Fumé.
