Personalised Domaine Christian Salmon Clos des Criots Pouilly-Fumé 2020 13% 750ml

Versatility is what this Sauvignon Blanc is all about. Fumé means ‘smoky’ in French which is a key indication of the style. Intense and complex floral aromas melt into smoky, mineral flavours coupled with a refreshing citrus and grapefruit edge. It has a beautiful rounded mouth-feel and an uplifting dry finish. A great food partner, this wine will hold it’s own even alongside rich pork dishes and smoked meats.

Domaine Christian Salmon is a family owned estate in the Coteaux Buetons, covering 15 hectares within the appellation of Sancerre Blanc and 3.25 hectares for Pouilly Fume. For six generations the Salmon family has been growing grapes and making wine with care, finesse and passion. The wines are in a classic, fresh and zesty style reliant on indigenous ferments, a very slow and gentle crush and extended time on lees in tank. Today Armand Salmon farms two main soil types in Sancerre: Terres blanches (clay-limestone), on the westernmost hills and Caillottes, (very stony and limestone rich). In the commune of Pouilly-sur-Loire, Domaine Christian Salmon’s unique vineyard "Clos des Criots" is located in the centre of the village. The soils are marls rich in oyster fossils (Kimmeridgian) and Villiers limestone.
