Pouilly-Fuissé "Prés des Gours" 2014 - Domaine Carrette


Pré des Gours is a powerful and complex Pouilly-Fuissé, with only a few hundred bottles produced every year. The grapes come from a tiny plot of 1.24 acres – or 0.5 hectare - on the hills of Vergisson and have spent over 20 months in oak barrels before being bottled. It opens on a fine nose of yellow peach, vanilla and toast. On the palate, the wine then develops notes of apricot, a discreet hint of honey and dried fruits. Long finish with a nice aromatic persistance. Great wine if you like oaked Chardonnay, it should aged very well for a few more years.
