Producer

Luc Poullain's career began strangely enough in Bedfordshire to study as an agricultural engineer, before, ironically, selling chemicals to the wine industry! Today, he manages an estate with an emphasis on environmental sustainability and is a leading advocate of the newly established Touraine-Chenonceaux AOC, part of a group of 30 growers who have the right to produce wines under its name.

His estate is split almost equally white and red, with eight hectares of Sauvignon planted on two different soil types (both flint and limestone).

Food Match

Excellent with any shellfish, not least mussels and crab, also a surprise match with Goat’s cheese and crusty bread.
