WHY THIS « FUMÉ » NAME :
Grapes of Pouilly Fumé, coming from the grape Sauvignon once at maturity, are covered with a grey bloom, with a smoke color.
The « Fumé » name can also be explained by its mineral taste, characteristic of flint, coming from flint land.
It is in 200 kms to the south of Paris that we encounter the Figeat Vineyards, lined with, to one side, the Roman Way, and to the other side, the mythical ROUTE NATIONALE 7.
