They have 4.8 ha (nearly 12 acres) and lots of small parcels, from 210 to 400 m, so they are blended. 80% fermented in tank and 20% in barrel. And one barrel was new. Smells more oaky and mealy than the Mâcon-Solutré 2016. More spicy. But on the palate, lots of bright pure citrus. Rich and creamy. A slight grip extends the length and heightens the freshness.

Set to become a premier cru. One parcel dates back to 1945. Quite a lot of clay with the limestone. Barrel fermented, 20% new oak. More fragrant and cedary than the village Pouilly-Fuissé 2016. Very inviting. Creamy but elegant, the oak very subtle. Dry, gently chewy, pure precise citrus. There’s mealy richness but great tension. Very direct, and has eaten the oak. Tense,

Coming from the heart of this AOC in the alkaline clay soils of Pouilly this wine is elegant with some frilled edges that are unmistakably Maconnais. The nose opens with a whiff of butterscotch and pear, playing with a little bit of citrus (tangerine?) and a hint of banana. On the palate these all carry over with added notes of the sweeter side of acacia and dried coconut.

A little more creamy/mealy than the En Bertilionne, a little less spice in the aroma. Fuller in the mouth, more power and intensity to the fruit but no loss of freshness. This is very classy Pouilly-Fuissé with a long finish and good ageing potential...
