Lying across river from Sancerre, Pouilly is home to benchmark Loire Sauvignon Blanc.


Balanced with ripe citrus notes, hints of freshly mown grass and hallmark minerality, it’s perfectly suited to all kinds of seafood, or recipes featuring goat’s cheese or asparagus.

Description

Since Armand Salmon’s great grandfather’s time, in the early 20th century, the family has owned excellent terroir dedicated to the Sauvignon Blanc. The gently sloping, south-facing, three hectare Clos des Criots vineyard is one of Pouilly’s finest.

In the winery, a modern pneumatic press slowly extracts the juice in the gentlest possible way, while cool fermentation preserves every ounce of freshness. Domaine Salmon’s motto is “Passion, tradition, authenticity” – the very forces that elevate great individually crafted wines like this to way beyond everyday quality.

Winery tasting notes

Straw yellow with golden highlights. An intense, floral nose of broom and acacia. A mineral note with a hint of smoke brings out all of the substance of this exceptional terroir. Notes of citrus are revealed on the palate with grapefruit on the finish, adding a touch of freshness.
