Winemaker's Notes:

The special terroir of this plateau, a mixture of silica sand and limestone, brings a vivacity to this cuvee and a freshness that is appreciated in our wines when young.

Aromas are very expressive from the very first year and are essentially fruity citrus (grapefruit), passion fruit, as well as floral (rose petals and white flowers).

This young vineyard bestows Cuvée de Boisfleury with a light structure that marries easily with many meals: fish and seafood of course, but it is equally delicious with white meats and certain cured meats and also makes a delightful aperitif.

Cuvée de Boisfleury is an easy to drink Pouilly-Fumé, fruity, elegant and beautifully feminine.

My Notes:

About Domaine Cailbourdin:

This estate consists of 11 hectares at the northern edge of the Pouilly Fume appellation opposite Sancerre. A high proportion of old vines, between 25 and 50 years old, as well as a variety of soil types (chalk, clay and sandy alluvion) combine to produce exceptional wines… among the most exciting in the appellation. Low yields and optimum maturity of the grapes is part of the secret.
