Cuvée de Boisfleury 2010
The lovely 2010 is here with a classic nose of fruits &white flowers, lovely balance between fruits and minerality, finishes with very good length. Difficult to find a finer Sauvignon Blanc.
Boisfleury is the domaine's most aromatic cuvée, and is the most appealing young. The vines are 6-18 years of age and grow on a limestone subsoil that is covered with siliceous alluviums, producing a wine of lovely freshness and lightness.
Alain describes the terroir and the wine:
"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 our wines 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."
