This estate of 19 hectares was set up some 30 years ago by expat Parisian Alain Cailbourdin. Spread throughout the various crus of Pouilly, with a high percentage of old and low yielding vines, the estate produces a range of Pouillys which are marked by a lovely purity and intensity of ripe fruit, and a fine, steely cut.
The Nanogyra is grown on Kimmeridgian marl, and possesses crystalline purity and textbook minerality. It is named after the tiny shellfish fossils found in the vineyard.
Les Cris is grown on the estate’s finest south-west facing Portlandian limestone slopes, and is a wine marked by greater richness and “gras”, and which arguably repays greater patience, perhaps a minimum of 2 years in bottle, before it shows at its best. Both are superb.
