Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Wine Style: Medium Bodied White
Closure: Cork / Cork Type
Producer: Alain Cailbourdin
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.
Alain Cailbourdin has grown from humble beginnings to one of the most sought after Pouilly Fume producers and today is a top Parker Domaine. 'Les Cris' is made from 30 year old vines planted on limestone soils around Tracy.
