The 2015 Pouilly-Fuisse Vignes Blanches refers to the age of the vines rather than a lieu-dit. It has a well-defined bouquet, with scents of cooking apple, chalk dust and light granitic scents that are nicely focused. The palate is very well balanced with subtle tropical notes of dried pineapple and grapefruit on the entry, which dovetails neatly into a harmonious and quite elegant finish that leaves a tang of ginger on the aftertaste. This comes recommended—a superb Pouilly-Fuissé from Saumaize-Michelin. (NM)
Here there is no funkiness as the pretty nose offers up notes of white flower, pear, apple and wisp of wood toast. The exceptionally rich and caressing medium-bodied flavors possess a subtle minerality on the finer if not more complex or persistent finish.
tasted from fût, not yet racked; malo finished): Deeply pitched aromas of apple and pear. In a rather airy style, but less generous and expansive than Saumaize's Pouilly-Fuissés from top terroirs. Offers an intriguing saline character but not the same sweetness or fruit intensity of the best 2015s at this address. Pear and spearmint flavors are joined on the end by a touch of metallic bitterness. This may be improved by a racking. (ST)
This rich wine is full of ripe yellow and melon fruitiness, showing the ripeness of the vintage. It has just the right acidity to balance the opulent fruit and the spice from wood aging. Drink now.
