Tasting Notes

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. Its also a fine accompaniment to an assortment of cured meats, and of course a natural companion with fine goat cheese.
