Domaine A. Cailbourdin Pouilly Fume 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The estate was created in 1980 and today it is comprised of 16 hectares (approximately 40 acres) of vines planted in some of the best Pouilly-Fumé slopes.

Our guiding principle is to bring forth the quality and diversity of the terroir. Our work methods described in the following pages attest to this aspiration. A wine can only be great if it has the mineral support of a quality terroir. The art of the winemaking profession consists of giving the grapes all the possible chances to reveal their qualities Read less

Subtle on the nose. Nice acidity. Classic SB with grapefruit and a bit of that mineral taste. Not a wine that surprises.
