Just in: 91pt Pouilly Fuisse
The 2010 vintage of the Gilles Noblet Pouilly Fuisse!!!
In case you have not heard, 2010 vintage for white burgundy is a “Classic Vintage” garnering tremendous praise from the Burghound and Jon Gilman's View from the Cellar.
The Noblet wines have been huge hits with you and the new arrival of Pouilly Fuisse is fantastic.
With a vintage as strong as 2010, stocking up on the little wines/guys is the smart way to go this summer.
“2010 – A Brilliant Vintage for Fans of Old-School White Burgundies”
“As is the case with the 2010 reds, the 2010 white burgundy vintage produced many, many classic wines that should be capable of extraordinary longevity…The average 2010 is a thing of beauty with everything required for greatness: ripe but ultra-fresh fruit, ample concentration but not too much, a firm acid spine, gorgeous purity of expression, intense minerality and best of all, impeccable balance.” BH 6/12.
"Green-tinged gold. A stunner of a wine, with a parade of aromas and flavors that run the gauntlet from sandalwood, orange rind, lemon oil, lanolin, chalk, wood, and baby powder coalescing in a balanced expression of Chardonnay. Delicious...91." SWJ 5/12.
