Pouilly-Fuissé “Clos sur la Roche”

2017

The flagship wine of the single-vineyard efforts at Saumaize-Michelin. They own a single 1.65 hectare parcel and the oldest vines are nearly 100 years-old. It’s located on the back side of the Roche de Vergisson, a very sunny area. The wine typically has supple fruit with dazzling minerality, showing the magical energy of this site.

"...boasts riveting complexity on the nose of white peach, honeysuckle, crushed gravel and a faint hazelnut aroma. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, showing real tension from start to finish. The saline finish is bursting with energy. Persistent and intense, this is a really stunning Pouilly-Fuissé that will age with style. "
