About

91

"Pierre Meurgey works with one grower in each of four appellations in the Mâconnais, including a farmer with five parcels in Pouilly; the vines for this selection average 75 years old. He ferments the wine in barrels (25 percent new), producing a classical Pouilly-Fuissé with nutty and toasty scents over a full, mineral-tinged structure. It has a fresh vanilla-bean note from the oak, and roundness to the texture. There’s complexity here to develop over the next several years in bottle."

90 Wine Spectator

"Ripe and expressive, this exhibits apricot, grapefruit, orange and baking spice aromas and flavors. Open and accessible, with a tangy, mouthwatering finish. Drink now. 300 cases made, 40 cases imported. — BS"
