Rule-breaking, citrusy Sauvvy-B.
Biodynamic wineries are a rare thing of beauty in Pouilly-Fume, and Guy Baudin’s property is definitely special. A party-sized liter of natty Sauvvy-b made from long lees aging, natural yeasts, and minimal sulfur intervention. Some folks claimed this wine wasn’t “Pouilly-Fume enough,” (whatever that means) so it was declassified and named “In Via.” Pure and juicy citrus fruit.
- The Sauvignon Blanc vines for this wine were sourced from a 35+ year old parcel grown on a mixture of clay and limestone soils from a south-facing parcel named Les Moulin à Vent or “The Windmills.”
- The wine is fermented in stainless steel then aged in cement where it rested on its lees for 12 months.
- Lilian Baudin - Guy Baudin’s son - has taken over operations at the property, and consistently butts heads with the local authorities in Pouilly-Fume for harvesting his vines by hand and using wild yeast to capture the essence of terroir at the property.
