Domaine Cailbourdin A. Pouilly-Fumé Cuvée de Boisfleury 2010
The special terroir of this plateau, a mixture of silica sand and limestone, brings a vivacity to this cuvee and a freshness that is appreciated in our wines when young. Aromas are very expressive from the very first year and are essentially fruity citrus (grapefruit), passion fruit, as well as floral (rose petals and white flowers). This young vineyard bestows Cuvée de Boisfleury with a light structure that marries easily with many meals: fish and seafood of course, but it is equally delicious with white meats and certain cured meats and also makes a delightful aperitif. Cuvée de Boisfleury is an easy to drink Pouilly-Fumé, fruity, elegant and beautifully feminine.
This highly regarded wine has lemon grass, a touch of acridness and sour pineapple on the nose - perhaps indicating the Loire Valley provenance of the wine. There is clean Sauvignon Blanc acidity with good mineral (almost gun flint) notes making this an elegant food wine. A pleasant sour pineapple flavor hits mid-palate, and there are also a few grassy elements poking through here and there. Recommended for seafood. If you can wait, there is sufficient pH for aging a few more years. Very well made.
