Pouilly-Fuissé Pentacrine

2016

Pentacrine is named for the small star-shaped fossils found in the vineyards. This is a blend of several parcels throughout Vergisson. Fermented and aged in demi-muids; floral with notes of strawberry and juicy pink grapefruit.

"...Perfumed aromas of peach and pear complicated by subtle minerality and hints of white pepper and menthol. Offers a juicy lemon drop flavor and an impression of racy sweetness (actually barely one gram per liter of residual sugar) leavened by fresh acidity. Finishes sappy, juicy and long, with refreshing notes of citrus zest and salinity. The demi-muids bring _ linearity while the smaller barrels contribute gras, notes Christine Saumaize."
