Jean-Paul Thibert Pouilly Fuisse 2015 is such a treat. It’s a barrel matured Chardonnay from the heart of one of Burgundy’s most generous terroirs – the limestone hills of Pouilly Fuisse. The wine is loaded with fruit – pineapple, apple, tangerine and peach – with classy accents of smoke, butter, toasted hazelnut and more. The nutty, salted caramel finish gets a just-right squeeze of lemon to make this a great match for seared scallops or roast chicken. The rich texture and generous fruit makes it delicious for just drinking now. And the fine structure and impeccable balance means you can age it for 4-5 years. Just $24.98 for bottles or $21.98/ea by the case while it lasts.
A great winemaker working with perfect fruit in the fine 2014 vintage produced as exciting a range of fine red Burgundies as we've ever seen. Village, 1er Cru, Grand cru - all are stunning and mix/match for best prices.
What makes a "great" Bordeaux vintage "great" is how excellent the "little wines" can be. We've loved Ch La Roche St Jean for years, but in 2015 it rockets to new heights of quality. So we backed up the truck and bought so much the importer threw in classic wood cases, too! From $8.98 this cannot be beat.
