The Curveux Menesetrieres Pouilly-Fuisse we offered a couple of weeks ago sold out in a day, including the extra cases we have coming from France in May, We were able to secure ten cases of Vigne Blanche another of his fine 1er crus. It is is just as fine, but subtler and more delicate than the Menestireres. If you were one of those who missed out two weeks ago, or if you don't want to wait until May for your wine, The Vigne Blanch will be here on Friday..


Handed down from father to son for four generations, Domaine Curveux is a family-owned vineyard in Fuissé, in the heart of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation. Currently, run by Guillaume Curveux, their vineyards comprise 8 hectares of vines spanning the three villages of Fuissé, Solutré, and Chaintré, with six of them in Pouilly–Fuissé proper.


France's Guide Hachette has cited a Curveux Pouilly-Fuisse as among the best of the region almost every year for the last ten, a remarkable achievement for a tiny family-run domaine. Despite that, they are little known in this country. 


The Vigne Blanche vineyard lies in Fuisse, just to the south of Menestrieres. Along with it, its is one of the better of twenty-two 1er crus of Pouilly Fuisse. Its wines can ne more nuanced and delicate than the others.


We can offer Curveux at such a low price because it comes to us direct from the vineyard through a local importer, bypassing a national one. Curveux's wines are always a bargain. For its power and richness, this 2022 is truly extraordinary, even more so for this rendition's sheer quality and strength.


To Best Enjoy: . Give it a little time to air with half an hour to an hour in a decanter or a pitcher, and it will show a subtle minerality to accompany its fruit density. Of course, this also means that it can age in the cellar. My best guess would be three to five years for it to be at its peak.
