Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(RP=92+) Opening in the glass with notes of crisp yellow orchard fruit, white flowers and toasted nuts, the 2018 Pouilly-Fuiss_ En Chatenay is medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural but tightly wound, with racy acids and good depth at the core. In the generally rather immediate 2018 vintage, this is one wine that will flesh out with a year or two of bottle age, even if it will be approachable younger. (AG=92) The 2018 Pouilly-Fuiss_ comes from a single 1.5-hectare vineyard in Vergisson and undergoes some aging in stainless steel. It has a steely, focused bouquet with razor-sharp precision. The taut, fresh palate displays wonderful balance. Very harmonious, with hints of white peach and nectarine toward the sustained finish. Excellent. (AM=90-92) Gon noted that this had not yet been assembled so the sample I was served may be slightly different from the final blend. The nose is unreadable due to strong sulfur influence. Otherwise there is excellent richness to the more refined medium weight flavors that possess very good mid-palate density as well as slightly better depth and precision on the impressively long finish.
