Cailbourdin Les Cris Pouilly-Fume 2019 - 375ml
Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "The 2019 Pouilly-Fumé Les Cris is all about its structure. Don't expect the usual aromatic descriptors; it’s textured, firm and powerful and requires more time in bottle, with its phenolics and acidity combining to grip the palate. There are aromas of flint and white talc from wild fermentation and a note of apple. Drinking window: 2023-2030." Aug 2021
Winery: "Harvested on the best limestone slopes in the appellation blessed with southwestern exposure, this Cuvee is a true thoroughbred and the most characteristic of our wines. 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."
