The 2015 Pouilly Fuisse Clos Sur la Roche has a clean and precise, stony, mineral-driven bouquet that is supremely well focused and seems full of energy and promise. The palate is very well balanced with fine acidity, plenty of concentration here, but it feels so controlled and precise, gently fanning out toward the finish with gorgeous orange zest and white peach notes lingering long on the aftertaste. What a fabulous Pouilly-Fuissé from Saumaize-Michelin. Roger and Christine Saumaize took over the domaine back in 1978 and, in my opinion, are one of the top producers in the Mâconnais. Still, that does not mean they don't suffer the same challenges as others: before commencing our tasting, they lamented how their workers can go AWOL. Trust me, that affects even the most prestigious properties. They have been biodynamic since 2005, although they are not certified. "We had exceptional conditions in 2015, but we were worried about the heat in the summer," Roger explained. (NM)
(still in barrel and not yet racked; like the Maréchaude and Ronchevats, this wine finished its secondary fermentation): Sexy scents of citrus peel and spearmint, plus a hint of complementary oak; smells like a wine from a very sunny year. Very rich, ripe and broad, with a slightly aggressive quality to the flavors of apple, pear, licorice and spices. The first vines picked here were at 14.5% potential, according to Saumaize, who told me he had never seen this before. The oldest vines in this vineyard yielded just 30 hectoliters per hectare. Very large-scaled and dense but remarkably consistent and not bitter.(ST)
