Description

Winemaker’s Notes
Vibrant straw, green-gold hints. Aromas of true complexity: citrus and orchard fruit, lemon, greengage, pear, peach and honey all mineral wrapped with a subtle oak. Linear yet rich. Classic and elegant. Exclusively coming from the terroir ‘Aux Bouthières’, 0.66 hectares (1.6 acre) deep, with clay, non calcareous, derived from residual clays “with chaille.” The ‘vielles vignes’ of Chardonnay, located at the southern end of Burgundy, are planted between 250 and 500 meters in altitude, higher than the others AOC from Bourgogne. Thus, they provide both maturity and freshness to the wines.

94   Wine & Spirits
“From a domaine under the Solutré hill, this selection has the classical proportions of a finely grown Pouilly-Fuissé. It benefits from the district’s complex terroir: A blend from three parcels totaling 3.2 acres, some of the vines grow in shallow soils over hard limestone rock, some of them in sedimentary, calcareous marl. The depth and detail of the wine’s earthiness and fruit flavors are impressive, with sweet notes of nectarines and yellow apples in the context of savory limestone acidity. The prickle of acidity adds clarity and refreshment to a creamy, rich and supple white, lovely now and suited to age.”

92    Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“The 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé opens in the glass with an attractive bouquet of confit citrus, Anjou pear and blanched almonds. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, deep and fleshy, with ripe acids, a nicely concentrated core of fruit and good tension at the core despite its expressive profile.”
