Domaine A. Cailbourdin Pouilly-Fumé les Cris 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Les "Cris" is the local term used to describe a parcel of vines planted in caillotes or pebbly limestone soil. Extraordinarily elegant, when young this wine possesses aromas of fruits (pineapple, citrus, peach) and mineral tones. After 1 or 2 years the aromas refine and become more and more marked by the minerality of the terroir. On the palate, Les Cris is powerful, well-structured and very rich. Excellent balance is achieved due to the perfect ripeness of the grapes at harvest. Les Cris Pouilly-Fumé is at its best served with fish, especially fish in sauce (goatfish, pickerel, pike, etc.). Its also a fine accompaniment to an assortment of cured meats, and of course a natural companion with fine goat cheese.

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. About half of the vines are "vieilles vignes" or old vines; the other half are vines planted since 1980. Grapes grown on the different slopes are vinified separately, thus permitting the production of four different cuvees, each representing a distinctive terroir and aromatic expression. Our constant concern for quality is evident throughout the entire winemaking process, from the vineyard to the cellar. 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
