2016 Saumaize Micheliin Pouilly Fuissé Pentacrine - 90 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo 250"(made from several parcels on limestone scree; pentacrine is a fossilized star-shaped echinoderm; made in demi-muids and barriques): Bright medium yellow. Perfumed aromas of peach and pear complicated by subtle minerality and hints of white pepper and menthol. Offers a juicy lemon drop flavor and an impression of racy sweetness (actually barely one gram per liter of residual sugar) leavened by fresh acidity. Finishes
sappy, juicy and long, with refreshing notes of citrus zest and salinity. The demi-muids bring _ linearity while the smaller barrels contribute gras, notes Christine Saumaize.- Stephen Tanzer"
