Pouilly is across the river from Sancerre, and produces the very well recognised Pouilly-Fumé and the almost unrecognised Pouilly-sur-Loire, which is made from Chasselas grapes (?).  Pouilly-Fumé, like Sancerre, is all Sauvignon Blanc, but with a smokier flavour flavour, sometimes referred to as being more pungent.  The wines of Ladoucette and Chateau de Tracy are the ones to taste in this region.
