Domaine du Roc des Boutires Pouilly-Fuissé Aux Bouthières – 2018 – Wine & Spirits – 93 Points
This grows at a parcel of 70-year-old vines in deep clay soils along with shale. It’s clean and densely concentrated, a little severe in its mineral acidity at first, before that minerality opens to flintiness and the racy fruit gains juiciness with air. Less than a third of this wine ages in oak barrels, subtly pointing up the wine’s smokiness. It would be delicious with a delicate dish, like Dover sole, in a buttery sauce.
