2003 Pouilly-Fuisée Les Brûlés, Château Fuissé

I bought a mixed case recently with some (hopefully) mature wines for near terrm consumption. This was a single bottle, and as it turned out, a really good bottle of mature Burgundy.

2003 Pouilly-Fuisée Les Brûlés, Château Fuissé
The nose is open for business, with lovely mature features in the shape of dried peaches, melted butter, dry fudge, lots of wet slate and a fine smokiness. A fine depth. Perfectly mature and shows a nice refinement. Really good.
The taste is a bit tighter than the nose with notes of spicy white peaches, sour/sweet lemons, fudge, slate and summer flowers. A long, focused finish with a refreshing acidity. Very, very good. A fine mouthfeel. Drinking perfectly now but will keep for 3+ years.
