Pouilly Fumé Cuvée de Boisfleury 2014 Domaine Alaine Cailbourdin
(Maltaverne Loire Valley France)
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 this wine 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.
