Pouilly-Fumé 'La Moynerie' is the Redde family's flagship wine and is a blend of wines originating from the main soils of the appellation. They are Cretaceous Flint from the commune of Saint Andelain, Kimmeridgian Marl from the commune of Pouilly-Sur-Loire, Portlandian Limestone from the commune of Tracy-sur-Loire and Oxfordian Limestone from the commune of Saint Martin Sur Nohain. This blended approach produces a balanced wine that plays on the strengths of each location. The finished wine expresses the density, aromatic minerality and saline purity of the soils.

Subtle but very complex on the nose with floral hints and notes of smoke and citrus fruits. On the palate it is intense and textured with a beautiful minerality, a clear, crisp acidity and a very long finish. The very special typicity of this reserve should be served with fish cooked in a sauce or with white meat.

Country Of Origin: France

The Redde family have been vigneron 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. The domaine's current size and cellar is entirely down to the work of Michel Redde, the father of current owner Thierry. Michel worked to expand the family's vineyard holdings and created La Moynerie domaine and cellar during the middle part of the twentieth century. He was also responsible for developing the market and reputation of the family's wines. The speciality of the Redde family is a series of single vineyard wines from the communes of Tracey-Sur-Loire, Pouilly-Sur-Loire and Saint Andelain. Each commune is an example of one of the 3 main soil types in Pouilly-Fume appellation and the 3 wines express the complex characteristics of each. The Cuvée Majorum, their flagship wine, is only produced in the best vintages and is from their oldest vines which are in excess of 45 years old. The La Moynerie is their signature Pouilly-Fumé and is a blend of grapes from different locations from vineyards older than 15 years. The youngest grapes between 10-15 years old go to the Petit-Fumé, a fresh vibrant wine perfect for everyday drinking.
