Pouilly-Fuissé "Les Crays"

2017

From a tiny .22 ares parcel. The soil is red due to its iron-rich top soil with the limestone of Verisson underneath. The vineyard is full of small stones that fall from the rock of Vergisson down the hill. This vineyard has full south exposure and the vines are 65-90 years old .

"...has a well-defined, mineral-driven bouquet that gradually unfolds in the glass to reveal edgy citrus fruit, apple blossom, crushed stone and traces of dried pineapple and quince. The poised, refined palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity and unexpected spiciness on the finish. Superb (yet again). "
