Jean Paul Thibert Pouilly Fuisse 2016 Product #32238 (In Stock)
Jean Paul Thibert Pouilly Fuisse 2016 Jean Paul Thibert Pouilly Fuisse 2016

Jean Paul Thibert's Jean Paul Thibert Macon Fuisse has been a store favorite for a few years now - but for the second vintage in a row his Pouilly Fuisse completely blows the doors off.   Our first thought on tasting this:  There's a lot of $40 Chassagne-Montrachet that's not nearly this good.

The wine greets you with gorgeous aromas of ripe orchard fruits - apple, peach, pear - with accents of lemon, hazelnut, fresh butter and white flowers.  Then this beauty delivers an absolutely classic white Burgundy palate of grilled pineapple, peach, pear, and lemon fruit with hazelnut, creme fraiche, and hints of salted caramel coming up as the wine warms.  The oak is well-integrated, the texture is rich and creamy and mouth-coating and the finish long and fresh, leaving hazelnut, mint, and tangerine flavors lingering. Real white Burgundy quality and satisfaction here at the price under most mid-range California Chardonnays (and, if you like Cali Chard, you’ll want to try this!)  “Burgundy” and “Bargain” don’t show up in the same sentence, or glass, often.  Don’t miss this one!
