- Dom Lemonier Pouilly Fuisse Terroirs 2014 Product #31170 (In Stock)
Here’s an outstanding white Burgundy from the best part of the Macon: the limestone-clay hills of Pouilly Fuisse. With one-third made in tank (for freshness) and two-thirds in older barrels (for richness and spice), it’s delicious right now and will just get better over the next few years.
This pretty wine opens with fresh, clean, aromas of nectarine and apple with an attractive accent of wet stone and lemon oil. There’s good richness and vibrancy to the flavors of green apple, under-ripe pineapple, and citrus fruits with details of lemon zest, more wet stone, and fresh picked chervil. Brisk and fresh on the stone and citrus fresh finish, this makes your mouth water and leaves peach skin, wet stone minerality, and a touch of pineapple lingering on the clean, dry, finish.
Stephen Tanzer reviewed this wine under the estate’s “main” label last year, and his note is spot on: "Intriguing nose offers peach, honey and spices plus a building note of smoky silex. Larger-scaled than the Mâcon-Vergisson and Saint-Véran, conveying an impression of sucrosité leavened by rocky energy. Boasts lovely concentration and firmness; not quite metallic but not a pliant or supple style despite its density. 89 points”
- Dom Sangouard-Guyot Pouilly Fuisse Ancestral 2014 Product #30893 (In Stock)
Handcrafted Pouilly-Fuisse that reminds you why this was once America's favorite French Chardonnay. From 40+ year-old vines, hand harvested, and matured in old 350 liter barrels to give richness and balance. Already delicious with richer seafood or mushroom dishes and sure to improve for 5-8 years more.
"Bright yellow. Sexy aromas of peach, apple and flowers, plus a hint of resiny oak. The richest by far of these 2014s to this point, showing a saline quality and excellent concentration to the tactile flavors of yellow peach, yellow apple and spices. Very long on the finish."
