2015 Pouilly-Fuissé Aux Vignes Dessus
Old vines here, with two parcels averaging fifty years of age. The soil is blue clay which provides richness and texture, though everything is kept in balance. The 10% new oak adds some structure and complexity and the evident weight, which comes, in part, from the low yields, is well controlled. Drink from 2018.
`Pale, bright yellow. Very expressive, sweet nose offers scents of tangy orange zest, flowers and pastry shell. With lovely floral intensity and power from the clay soil, this Pouilly-Fuissé calls for a bit of patience. ` 89+ points, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
