Pouilly-Fuissé 2015 - Domaine Les Vieux Murs


Pouilly-Fuissé is THE star of the Mâconnais – and one of Your Sommelier's favourite appellations for white Burgundy wines! The Domaine Les Vieux Murs is a small 4-hectare estate made of some of the best parcels in Pouilly-Fuissé. It all started here for the Paquet family in 1978, and they have kept the original name and label of the Domaine after expanding with Fussiacus. This is a subtle Chardonnay exhibiting yummy aromas of ripe white fruit and notes of flowers. A nice balance and a buttery yet fresh finish for this warmly recommended Pouilly-Fuissé.

What experts say  
  
Silver Medal at Decanter Worl Wine Awards "Ripe, rich and opulent melon and exotic fruit nose with nuances of lemon tart and a gentle oak influence. Fruit driven, weighty palate of stone fruit, freshly cooked butter biscuits and lemon zest."(Previous vintage)
  
  
 
90/100 "Pouilly-Fuisse Les Vieux Murs has a perfumed bouquet with lifted scents of quince, honeysuckle and orange blossom that soar from the glass. The palate is well-balanced with plenty of succulent Satsuma and quince notes, though the finish needs a little more delineation and poise. This represents a big leap in quality over the regular Pouilly villages." (Previous vintage)
 
  
  
88/100 "Bright yellow colour with green hue. Racy nose, ripe white fruit, touch of flint. Harmonious palate with yummy fruit, a few spices support the minerality. Convincing wine." (Previous vintage)
  
  
 
15/20 "The pale golden robe already shows a lot of freshness - which nose confirms with aromas of citrus, white pepper, green apple, pear. Vanilla comes next and we also find it on the palate with a buttery and light aspect at the same time. Pleasing!" (Previous vintage)
