Wine of Pouilly-Fumé appellation
Pouilly is on the right bank of the Loire River, extending into seven villages of the Nivernais (the region around Nevers, in the Nièvre department). Established in 1937, this zone has two wine appellations: Pouilly-Fumé and Pouilly-sur-Loire. The former owes its name to the area's unusual sand and gravel terraces made of ancient alluvium deposited on Kimmeridgian and Oxfordian limestone (hard limestone and silex), which is similar to the terroir of Sancerre. 

Located about 200 kilometers (124 miles) from Paris, in the southeast part of the Paris Basin, Pouilly-Fumé lies on the banks of the Loire River, which heavily influences the local climate. Covering about 1,200 hectares (2,965 acres) and producing 59,000 hectoliters of wine annually, the vineyards of Pouilly-Fumé are planted exclusively to Sauvignon Blanc. The choice of variety is the main distinction between this appellation and Pouilly-sur-Loire. 

Pouilly-Fumé is a white wine with a distinctive aroma of flint, intense minerality, and citrus notes. It may be drunk young, but certain cuvées have great aging potential. Château de Tracy, Domaine Didier Dagueneau, and Domaine Michel Redde et Fils produce excellent examples.
