    Winemaker's Notes:

    Unlike the Bordeaux region, where Sauvignon Blanc is often blended with Semillon, in the Loire it is a stand alone, single grape wine. This is truly one of the best Sauvignon Blancs we have ever tasted! Bright pale green, packed with aromas of green apple, pear, sage & mint. The taste is quite persistent with all the flavors of the nose carrying through to the palate along with wonderful mineral character and a touch of grapefruit that lingers generously to the long & delicious finish. Complex and subtle with lots of character make it an excellent Pouilly Fume. An elegant and very pleasing choice to serve your guests!

    Critical Acclaim:

    The Cailbourdin 2009 Pouilly-Fume Les Cris – from classic, pebbly Kimmeridgian soil, as its name implies – leads with smoke tinged gooseberry, sage, and pennyroyal; delivers cut, brightness, and a strong sense of chalk dust on the palate; and finishes with an invigorating, refreshing injection of salt and fresh lime. This displays an almost laser-like focus and cut you’d least expect to encounter in 2009 and lays down mineral traces that all of the saliva and lip licking it induces won’t remove. In fact, I can’t recall having tasted another wine this fine, nor such an outstanding value from Cailbourdin.
