Pouilly-Fume Triptyque Domaine Alain Cailbourdin Bottle 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review: 'From the red flint south facing soils of Les Renardieres, just below Les<br/>Cocques and the village of St.Andelain comes this thoroughbred of a<br/>Pouilly-Fume, born of 70 year old vines and elevage in 25% new french 300 litre<br/>tonneaux. Immensely pure and detailed on the nose, with stony, crushed oyster<br/>shell fruit aromatics which are gently supported by a cushion of finest oak.<br/>The palate at this embryonic stage of its life swells with tension, a lovely<br/>weave of shellfish and citrus fruit, sublime ripeness and exquisite balance.<br/>Worth decanting beforehand. Bravo Alain!' <br/>(David Berry Green-BBR Buyer)
