Some cheese makes up a light friday dinner, and I opened a nice white Burgundy to go along.
2014 Pouilly-Fuissé Le Clos, Château Fuissé
This producer makes great Chardonnay´s from Pouilly-Fuissé. This is a Monopole wine with more than 50 years old vines. The nose is stunning with notes of grilled lemons, hazel nuts, candle grease and melted butter. Lots of white flowers and a touch of matchbox. Deep and tight. This is really fine.
The taste is rich and potent with notes of blood oranges, lemon cream, lemon fudge and wheat cookies. The finish is long, long, long and balanced. A very fine acidity. Great wine, that will become even greater with 5-7 years in the cellar.
93p (tasted 2016/11)
