Giroux Pouilly-Fuisse Vieilles Vignes 2019
Sebastien’s old vine Pouilly-Fuissé comes from vines planted in rocky soil in 1942. The Pouilly-Fuissé Vieilles Vignes 2019 spent a year in oak barrels, followed by almost a year en cuve. The nose features pure fruit accompanied by a lovely minerality, and the wine has a distinct lift, a “côté aerienne” as the French put it. William Kelley awarded 91-93 points, calling it “fleshy but precise, with vibrant acids,” and “one of the highlights of the range this year.” The oak is perfectly integrated into this wine, with tightly channeled energy and seemingly unending finish. This doesn’t taste like Meursault – indeed it could only be from the Maconnais – but the layered complexity and subtle depth could easily rival some of the great whites of the Côte d’Or.
