WINEMAKER OF THE WEEK

GUILLAUME SORBE - LES POETE DOMAIN - PREUILLY

Guillaume Sorbe is one of those inegrowers whose small production of pinot noir, pinot gris and sauvignon is snapped up by wine bars and sommeliers alike. A rising star in the Loire region, he makes haute-couture cuvées with or without appellation (Pouilly-Fumé, Touraine and Vin de France) at his domaine Les Poëte (named after his great-grandmother). The estate is run with the greatest respect for nature, and each cuvée lives up to its motto: “Less but Better”. From the simple Touraine “S” (€17) to the famous “Toison d'Or” (pinot gris, €36), not forgetting the sauvignon parcellaires, all very successful in 2023. The Guide Bettane + Desseauve awards it 3★/5 and the Guide RVF des Meilleurs Vins de France 2024 awards it 2★/4: “This year, we are awarding the estate a second star to celebrate the meticulous work of the winemaker and the quality of the wines: mature, meticulous, deep and pure expressions. (...) Welcome to Sauvignon paradise, here interpreted by an inspired soloist!”
