Winemaker Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

V 92
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. Best After 2023

D 90
Decanter

Restrained fruit on the nose. Aromas of lemon and smoke. Soft and delicate palate, opening up into a fruity finish.

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.

Famous in the Loire and throughout the world for perfumed Sauvignon blanc, Pouilly-Fume sits due east, across the Loire River from Sancerre. Limestone soils with clay and flint (also called silex) contribute to the wines' freshness and often times smoky, flinty, mineral character.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
