Pouilly-Fuissé "Quintessence" 2016 - Domaine Sangouard-Guyot

Cuvée Quintessence comes from one of the best vineyards of Vergisson - "Le Clos des Croux" in the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation. The nose is complex and reveals so much about the personality of the wine. It shows aromas of citrus and gently toasted fruit. On the palate, a nice minerality perfectly balanced with the subtle toasty notes provided by the oak. A beautiful bottle!

What experts say  
92/100 "Editors' Choice" "This wood aged wine is ripe, textured with minerality and edged in crisp apple and citrus flavor. Tight now, it shows great potential and needs to develop." (previous vintage)
Commended at Decanter World Wine Awards

89/100 "The Pouilly Fuissé Quintessence comes from the climat of “Le Clos des Croux” in Vergisson: 50-year-old vines that are picked by hand and aged in new barrels for ten months with weekly lees stirring. It has a light lemon-meringue nose that does not quite get out of second gear despite coaxing. The palate is crisp and almost effervescent on the entry with a fine thread of acidity. The finish is a little compact and short, though there is the substance here to suggest that it will repay two or three years in bottle. I think this will come around, but patience is needed."

This unusual Mâcon appellation comes from the small village of Bussières, right at the edge of the Pouilly-Fuissé area. The location, and the ageing in oak barrels, could explain why it tastes more like a Pouilly-Fuissé than a classic Mâcon-Villages! Its first nose is rather fruity, leading to fine mineral fragrances. Great balance of flavours in the...

Saint-Véran is one of the appellations of the Maconnais in South Burgundy, it is a lovely Chardonnay with a mineral nose of white fruit, flowers and a touch of citrus. The wine is rich and round with a perfect balance between freshness, intensity and the aromas of ripe fruits. Definitely a great Saint-Véran, ready to drink today and worth every penny!

This typical terroir brings minerality, balance and power to the wine and the ageing in thermo-regulated tanks preserves its elegant and silky fruit aromas. A fantastic Pouilly-Fuissé praised...

This second Pouilly-Fuissé comes from one of the best plots of Vergisson: “Ronchevat”, a 50 year-old vineyard planted on clay-limestone soils. Mindful of traditions, Pierre-Emmanuel leaves this cuvée in oak barrels as his ancestors used to do. The result is a full-bodied wine with toasty and buttery notes, aromas of white flowers and exotic fruit,...
