I have many happy memories of previous vintages

This wine is not only a delight when young, but I’ve had ten-year old bottles that have provided a lot of pleasure. If I like this bottle, I’ll do the experiment again.

Pouilly-Fuisse “Vieilles Vignes” 2005, Chateau Fuisse

A nose of proper Burgundy: play-dough and baby vomit. Plenty of creamy minerality and lovely lemon fruit. There is proper complexity on the nose and a real concentration of aromas. The palate has a deeply pleasing texture, with great fruit, perfectly integrated acidity and layers of concentrated flavour. There is a lot of charm about this wine, I am enjoying it greatly. It clearly has a very rewarding future ahead of it; I’ll get another bottle and do the experiment.
