Maillet Pouilly-Fuissé 2020
Year in and year out, in warm vintages and cool, Maillet’s wines retain a balance and freshness that’s remarkably consistent. Maillet credits organic viticulture, natural yeasts, and long cool fermentations with the energy found in these lush, vibrant Chardonnays.
This is the only cuvée Maillet raises in oak, and while it’s a departure in style, the wine is truly delicious. The 2020 Pouilly-Fuissé is a more serious wine than his others, with notes of lemon peel and crême brûlée. In the mouth the abundant yellow fruit and delicate acidity join a subtle salinity – think pear, seashells, sweet-cream butter and faint toast. The finish is exceptionally long and rich, carried through with excellent focus.
