Pouilly-Fuissé Vers Cras – 2018

Burghound.com
91 Points

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.

Pouilly-Fuissé Aux Bouthières – 2018

Vinous
94 Points

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.

2018 Pouilly-Fuissé En Bertilionne is fabulous. A wine of precision and energy, the Bertilionne has just enough freshness to balance the natural generosity of the year. Lemon confit, white flowers, orchard fruit and saline notes are all finely knit. I very much like the translucence and cut here. In a word: impressive.

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.

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.

Impressive intensity for a village wine, lots of bright citrus and freshness. Pure fruited and well sustained with a stony, mouth-watering aftertaste.

Pouilly-Fuissé – 2017

The Wine Advocate
92 Points

The 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé opens in the glass with an attractive bouquet of confit citrus, Anjou pear and blanched almonds. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and fleshy, with ripe acids, a nicely concentrated core of fruit and good tension at the core despite its expressive profile.

Pouilly-Fuissé – 2017

Wine & Spirits
94 Points

From a domaine under the Solutré hill, this selection has the classical proportions of a finely grown Pouilly-Fuissé. It benefits from the district’s complex terroir: A blend from three parcels totaling 3.2 acres, some of the vines grow in shallow soils over hard limestone rock, some of them in sedimentary, calcareous marl. The depth and detail of the wine’s earthiness and fruit flavors are impressive, with sweet notes of nectarines and yellow apples in the context of savory limestone acidity...

Clean, fragrant and creamy-rich, this wine has the juicy pineapple flavors of a New World chardonnay with a lemony savor that keeps it in the Mâcon. Generous and ripe, it’s ready to chill for roast prawns.

Stone dust and citrus aroma with a hint of smoky reduction. Oak shows on the palate in a cedary flavour and creamy texture.

The nose of this wine is a little shy but promises freshness, with a hint of yellow apple. The bright palate has hints of flintiness and smoke that lend more interest to this fruity wine.

The Wine Advocate

Opening in the glass with notes of ripe pears, confit citrus, nutmeg and warm bread, the 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé Aux Bouthières is medium to full-bodied, rich and textural, with an unctuous, chewy mid-palate, ripe acids and a saline, expansive finish that displays plenty of sucrosity from ripe grapes.

Wine & Spirits

This domaine’s 1.6-acre Aux Bouthières parcel is deep clay without calcareous rock, planted to vines 55 years old. In a lineup of Pouilly-Fuissé, it stands apart, the terroir speaking in the complexity of the wine. The flavors are bold and completely clean, and though the entire lot aged for a year in oak barrels (30 percent new), the wood influence comes through in cedar and foresty highlights, in richness adding to the elegance of the citrus and apple flavors. A brisk Pouilly-Fuissé suited to several years of bottle age.

This ripe and fruity wine from the heart of the appellation's terroirs is attractively spicy as well as packed with crisp apple fruits. Balanced and lifted by acidity, the wine still has attractive freshness. Drink now.

The 2016 Pouilly-Fuissé Aux Bouthières comes from clay-limestone soils, frost in this year reducing the yield by around one-half (20hl/ha). It offers crisp lemon rind, crushed stone and white peach. The palate is full of energy, shrugging off the trauma of the growing season and delivering a satisfying, quite tantalizing mineral-rich finish. If this is a precursor to what the Parinet family intend with the domaine then we are in for a treat. Highly recommended.

Delicate, precise citrus aroma. Just slightly stony/mineral. Rounded texture and quite salty on the palate. Fresh and taut, mouth-watering finish, building to greater intensity at the end.

Slightly and attractively smoky/rocky on the nose and a complex mix of herbs, spice and green fruits. There's a creamy richness in the texture and lovely depth of fruit, balanced by just-right acidity.

A generous bouquet of marzipan and ripe pears that's subtly framed by new wood introduces the 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé En Bertillonne, a medium to full-bodied, deep and muscular wine that's textural and blocky in profile, with ripe underlying acids and a heady finish. Its structure and concentration are impressive, but it will merit a little bottle age.

The 2016 Pouilly-Fuissé En Bertilionne has a wonderful, crisp, flinty bouquet with precise Granny Smith apple and freshly sliced pear aromas. A real citric drive, you can really inhale the terroir here. The palate is very well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and linear but with commendable weight and persistence towards the finish, just a touch of spice lingering on the aftertaste. Superb. Tasted at Flint Wines' Value Burgundy tasting.

Pouilly-Fuissé Vers Cras – 2017

The Wine Advocate

The 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé Vers Cras bursts with aromas of fresh peaches, golden orchard fruits, Meyer lemon and nutmeg. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and enveloping, with a textural attack, a fleshy core and an expansive finish. This is a generous, elegantly textural Vers Cras that is already drinking well.
