2014 Saumaize Micheliin Pouilly Fuissé Pentacrine - 89 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"(an assemblage of 30 mostly small parcels, primarily on the north side of Vergisson; bottled at the end of July; two-thirds raised in demi-muids and one-third in pièces): Pale yellow. Aromas of citrus peel and subtle herbs reminded me a bit of Grüner veltliner. Brisk acidity and saline minerality add lift and verve to the flavors of lime, spices and fresh herbs. A very sharply delineated wine, which Roger Saumaize partly attributes to the extensive use of demi-muids, explaining that a higher percentage of pièces would have resulted in a more buttery style. This entry-level Pouilly-Fuissé offers good grip and persistence, not to mention immediate sappy drinkability. It should make a perfect aperitif to start the salivary glands pumping. Saumaize recommends drinking this wine within the next two years or after 2020. - Stephen Tanzer"
