VDF Pierre Precieuse Domaine Bain Domaine Bain, (formerly known as Pouilly Fume!) biodynamic wine, flinty aroma, classic yet wild and generous. Deliciously rich and stylish wine from Pouilly Fume, fresh and tangy Sauvignon Blanc, minerals and notes of blossom, orange and a flinty firmness characterise a wine of true purity! This is very complex Loire Sauvignon yet it is so easy to drink glass after glass after glass. Alex Bain is not fond of his appellation and its rules and control so he opts out for now with the 2017, who knows it might be Pouilly Fume again in the future!

The vineyards (4.9ha) are situated in Tracy-sur-Loire in the north of the Pouilly-Fumé appellation on south west oriented slopes mixed between Portlandian limestone and Kimmeridgean clay. A lot of work amongst the vines: pruning, de-budding, leaf thinning, whilst neither pesticides nor artificial fertilisers are used. Travail du sol is effected with the aid of a horse. This method of working the soil, the vines, the grapes and the wine is based on ecological responsibility and the desire to create a wine that offers the maximum of pleasure. Which it does. The wine is vinified in cement. This is a lovely expression of Sauvignon with ripe kiwi fruit and a particularly tangy finish. There is more richness to the wines of domain Bain compared to those of his contemporaries. Rather than steeliness, Bain Sauvignon has a richness and depth not often associated with Loire Sauvignon. They are full bodied wines but also minerally and there is often a distinctive tangerine aroma.


1Reviews For VDF Pierre Precieuse Domaine Bain 2017

  1. How good is this wine?


    Pretty darn rich for an SB, and "classic" in the BV description doesn't really capture it (though "medium bodied" gets closer).

    Fruit was heading from lime and lemon zest towards pineapple and kiwi, but the main thing that jumped out for me was the wonderful relationship between the acidity and the kind of chewy texture presumably resulting from refusing to fine and filter.

    Feels like a supremely food-friendly wine. Hopefully they let AB back into the Pouilly-Fume appellation - that boring [stuff] needs him.
