Trouillet Lebeau Pouilly-Fuisse Aux Chailloux
Les Vins Trouillet Lebeau
France - Burgundy - Pouilly Fuisse   

This Pouilly-Fuisse is produced from 60 year old Chardonnay grapes (among the oldest of the domaine) that are grown in the foothills of the Solutre Rock on the parcel called "Chailloux" - the name means in old French clay and rounded “chailles” or stones. They play a significant role in the composition of the soil as they bring minerality to the wine.

The wine offers beautiful aromas of red juice orange and spices. Ample in the mouth, rich and full, with a fresh finish on citrus fruits.

burghound logo"There is a whiff of passion fruit on the vaguely phenolic (think olive oil nuances) and white flower scents. The solidly dense and nicely voluminous detailed middle weight flavors possess very good intensity before concluding in a clean, dry, chiseled and lemony finish. This could use a bit more depth, but I suspect that more will develop with 2 to 3 years of bottle age. Worth checking out."
