Domaine Christian Salmon Pouilly Fume Clos Des Criots S
Fume means 'smoky' in French, which descibes the aromas of this wine to a tee. In amongst the smokiness there are aromas and flavours of gooseberries, melons and citrus, bright acidity, a rounded mouthfeel, and a dry, refreshing finish. These wines are very versatile with food, and can stand up to rich pork dishes and smoked meats.
This Pouilly-Fumé is made exclusively with Sauvignon Blanc grapes grown on the hillside of Pouilly-sur-Loire, in a very fine vineyard with a surface area of over 3 hectares. "Clos des Criots" boasts straw yellow colour with golden highlights. It features an intense, floral (broom, acacia) complex nose. A mineral note with a hint lof smoke brings out all of the substance of this exceptional terroir Notes of citrus are revealed on the palate with grapefruit on the finishadding a touch of freshness.
