France - Loire
What We Say
A crisp and elegant Pouilly-Fumé with citrus and flinty mineral nuances. Refreshing and balanced with a lingering finish.
What They Say
Eye : Pale yellow color, green-silver reflections. Nose : Varietal thiols and intense citrus dominate the first nose. On opening, a mineral/grilled profile stands out. Notes of lemon peel and bergamot add complexity to the whole. We also perceive a floral background marked by heady white flowers. Taste : The attack is lively, the mouth is strict and straight. The aromatic profile by these notes of citrus fruits and minerality confirms this feeling of tension. The finish is characterized by lemon zest and a slight saline touch.
About The Producer Domaine Cédrick Bardin
The estate, located in the heart of the village of Pouilly sur Loire, has 13 hectares of vines spread over four appellations: Pouilly sur Loire, Pouilly Fumé, Sancerre and Coteaux du Giennois. The estate is composed of about ten hectares spread over the two banks of the Loire. The size of their estate allows them to master all aspects of the operation, from the work on the vines to the marketing of their wines. For the past fifteen years, they have been trying to work in the most rational way possible, respecting the terroir and the environment, using modern techniques and above all not forgetting the knowledge passed on to them by previous generations.
