2015 Domaine Daniel et Julien Barraud Pouilly-Fuisse “Alliance” Vieilles Vignes
Cépage: Chardonnay (100%)
Size: 750 ml
Rating(s): 91 (RP)
" The 2015 Pouilly-Fuisse "Alliance" Vieilles Vignes comes from vines between 40 and 60 years old and is vinified in barrels, demi-muids and stainless steel vats, with around 15% new wood. It has an attractive resinous, beeswax-scented bouquet that gradually unfurls in the glass. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, touches of orange rind and lemon thyme, a dash of white pepper on the back palate and then a linear finish that suggests this will benefit from a couple of years in bottle. This comes recommended, like several of Barraud's 2015s."
