  • Domaine Leflaive Pouilly Fuissé La Chaneau – 2018 – Vinous – 92 Points

    The 2018 Pouilly-Fuissé Le Chaneau is bright, translucent and full of energy. A hint of reduction in the aromatics leads to a core of citrus confit, white flowers, mint and white pepper. Aromatically high toned and chiseled on the palate, the 2018 is superb. Bright saline notes round out the precise finish.
