Maison Valette Pouilly-Fuisse 2016
Regular price $184.00
60-year-old vines; aged for 30 months in older barrels, this is the most recently bottled of the "regular" Pouilly-Fuissé - but really, there's nothing regular about this wine.
The definition of "fancy burgundy", from one of the greatest chardonnay producers on earth. Domaine Valette produces only chardonnay - renowned for it's pristine fruit character, intense minerality, and refreshment factor and incredible palate-staining flavour.
This vintage of PF is all waxy citrus skins, marzipan, and honeyed white florals. A textural white that sits in the medium to full bodied arena, with a lean and consistent through-line of acidity that remains zingy and fresh even after a (recommended) cellaring of up to 20 years. Like we said. Nothing regular here.
One for the cellar.
