Chateau Fuisse is arguably the top source for fine Pouilly Fuisse. And Les Clos, the walled vineyard just behind the domaine, has become one of the estate's top selections. It is not a budget wine, but, when I saw this bottle available at auction, I was willing to bid about $25 for the experience of tasting a mature bottle. We were not disappointed.
Deep gold, clear and bright. Deep, concentrated scents of ripe apples, spice and minerals. Creamy and rich. Still lively with lemon acidity. Intense flavors--apples, pears, minerals--attack slowly, then seem to burst into the mouth. At 16 years of age, still drinking beautifully.
