2017 Tinel-Blondelet Pouilly-Fume Genetin - 88 PTS - JD

jeb dunnuck logo 250"Tart citrus, earth, honey, and a touch of flinty minerality emerge from the 2017 Pouilly-Fume Genetin, which is all Sauvignon Blanc raised in stainless steel. It’s surprisingly rich and textured on the palate, with some serious oomph, yet has bright acidity and a clean finish. It’s an interesting wine that’s going to do well on the dinner table. I suspect it will be better in another 6-12 months and should keep for 3-4 years."

 "Culled from 35-year-old vines growing in limestone soils, this wine is nimble, carrying its ripe tropical fruit on a lean frame. Refreshing and clean, the grassy floral finish has just enough green notes and minerality to add character without any hint of bitterness."

2019 Tinel-Blondelet Pouilly-Fume Genetin - 92 PTS - WE

wine enthusiast 92 pts"Grown on limestone soil, this perfumed, citrus-flavored wine will be very attractive. As it softens and the initial shock of acidity dissipates, the wine will develop peach and apple flavors, always keeping its mineral edge. Drink from 2022. - Roger Voss"
