Pouilly-Fuissé Vers Cras
Once again there is whisper of the exotic in the form of lychee on the fresh aromas apple, essence of pear and white peach. The sleeker,more intense and stony middle weight flavors possess notably better persistence on the balanced, clean and agreeably dry finale. This too could use a bit more depth,but it should be capable of developing more with a few years of bottle age.
Gentle vanilla notes wrap themselves around ripe Mirabelle plum fruit on the nose of this wine. The palate continues with this scented, gentle smoothness that fills palate and mind. The dry finish reveals concentration.
The Wine Advocate
The 2018 Pouilly-Fuissé Vers Cras opens in the glass with hints of blanched almonds, fresh pastry and crisp yellow orchard fruit. Medium to full-bodied, bright and incisive, it's less overtly textural and more introverted than the other wines in the portfolio this year, and I suspect it will flesh out to fine effect with a little bottle age.
