Domaine de Bel Air has been in the Mauroy family since the 19th century and has 15 hectares of Pouilly-Fumé vineyards, located on the south-facing slopes of Pouilly-sur-Loire and Saint-Andelain. Winemaker Katia Mauroy-Gauliez co-owns the estate with her brother Cédric. They are the eighth generation to oversee Katia’s wines which are structured yet generous and among the best in the appellation. To add complexity to the Pouilly-Fumé blend, the fruit is sourced from three different vineyard parcels. Most of the blend comes from a parcel on Kimmeridgian limestone, contributing mineral structure. The remainder comes from a combination of limestone, clay and sand, which supplies the ample fruit and aromatics to the blend.
