Going From Strength to Strength - The Pouilly-Fuissé From Domaine Georges Burrier

Georges Burrier continues to produce a great drinking Chardonnay with aging potential for a song (20 Euro). The 2009 tasted here and the 2010 here.

2011 Pouilly-Fuissé, Domaine Georges Burrier
It needs a bit of time in the glass before lovely scents of white peaches, grapefruit, dry fudge, ripe tangerines and a touch of smoke emerges out of the glass. It opens up nicely and keeps going all night long, and even when it reaches room temperature it holds things together. Really fine.
The taste is full of yellow apples, almond paste, dried flowers and sweet minerals. The acidity is there to tighten things up in the finish. Long and fine. This is nicely put together. For drinking now and the coming 6+ years.
