Marc Deschamps Pouilly-Fumé Les Champs de Cri 2018

 One of the more obscure Sauvignon Blanc appellations in the Loire Valley, Pouilly-Fumé is about half the size of neighboring Sancerre just across the river but has nowhere near the market share in the US and might be practically invisible were it not for Didier Dagueneau's cult bottlings. As those wines make clear, this is special terroir. Though based on the same Kimmeridgian limestone as Sancerre, the presence of flint in the soil here lends these wines a subtle smoky quality that really sets them apart. Where Sancerre tends to show off a little more Sauvignon Blanc fruit, Pouilly-Fumé is all about minerality.
