WineO Mark Review

A pale and almost clear color on the glass. Its aroma is filled with pears, peaches, gooseberries, and butter with notes of minerals, hint of oak and flint. This characteristic “gunflint” quality, distinctive of the Pouilly-Fume appellation, lends an intriguing layer of complexity to the aroma profile.

This is a light-bodied wine that’s fruity, crispy, and flavorful. On the palate, it has complex layers and refreshing acidity making it a crisp white wine. You can taste the apple, apricot, grapefruit, peach, and melon with hints of lemon, lime, flint, and minerals. Lastly the wine’s vibrant acidity is admirably balanced with the fruit and earthy flavors resulting in a mouthfeel that’s both lively and substantial.

This wine exhibits the epitome of what a well-crafted Pouilly-Fume should be!
