Chateau Fuisse Pouilly-Fuisse Le Clos 2017
D97: A luscious, multi-layered explosion of mouthwatering blood orange, fresh mineral, baked apple and juicy stone fruit; creamy, opulent and textured with a smoky, nutty, toasty oak core, fine fresh acidity and a luxurious, complex finish.
WA94: The 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé Le Clos is showing superbly, unfurling in the glass with aromas of honeycomb, mandarin, confit lemon and citrus zest that are deftly framed by a light touch of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and satiny, with a deep and multidimensional core, lively acids and a long, saline finish. It's the finest rendition of this bottling for several years.
WE94: This smoky, wood-aged wine comes from a walled vineyard next to the Château de Fuissé. Produced from old vines, it has concentrated apple and pear flavors, a touch of spice as well as acidity. The generous, opulent character will allow it to age. Drink from 2022.
WS93: Offering a mix of peach, melon and lemon curd flavors wrapped in toasty oak, this white also boasts a creamy texture. A beam of acidity at the core drives the lingering aftertaste. Starts out rich and finishes long and clean. Drink now through 2025.
