Giroux Pouilly-Fuisse Radillons 2019
Sebastien Giroux has 6 hectares of vines in and around Fuissé. The wines are very much handmade, with élévage carefully calibrated according to vineyard and vintage. Sebastien bottles only when he feels his wines are ready. We were drawn to the domaine by praise from William Kelley, who described the wines as “supple, pure, and charming.”
Pouilly-Fuissé “Radillons” 2019 comes from limestone soils situated over marl (causing the vines to suffer a bit, according to Sebastien). The wine spent about six months in barrels, followed by six months en cuve. Kelley praised this wine as “rich and layered,” “[u]nwinding in the glass with notes of pear, white flowers,… and mint,” and gave 90-92 points. There is a terrific mix of fruit and minerals here, offered in a racy style. The texture is thick and concentrated but with excellent focus.
