Pouilly-Fumé Vieilles Vignes 2015 - Domaine Hubert Brochard


This "Cuvée Vieilles Vignes" - old vines - is definitely a very high-end Pouilly-Fumé. Aged in large oak barrels (quite unusual for this appellation), it shows an unusual roundness with toasted and buttery flavours. Very supple on the palate with beautiful and elegant aromas of white peach and citrus. This is a very complex Pouilly-Fumé, one of the most beautiful we have seen in a while.
