Pouilly-Fuissé Aux Bouthières
The 2018 Pouilly-Fuissé Aux Bouthières is an incredibly distinctive wine. Broad, ample and creamy, the 2018 possesses tremendous textural resonance and nuance that only builds over time. Lemon confit, white flowers, almonds, white pepper and a touch of reduction give the 2018 striking flavor complexity, but it is the wine's substance and overall depth that are most compelling. The 2018 is a fabulous wine by any measure. Don't miss it.
Wine & Spirits
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.
