Bouchard Aine & Fils Pouilly Fuisse, 2012

Pouilly Fuisse is priced a bit higher than most Macon wines, but I think it's worth the premium, particularly the Pouilly Fuisses from this venerable estate.

Deep gold. At the deep end of its aging cycle and showing all the positive attributes of a mature wine. White flowers, cinnamon-spiced apples and pears, Pouilly Fuisse minerals. Oh, so rich on the palate but still enough acid to dance with a light step. Concentrated fruit with a touch of creaminess from aging on its lees. A hint of honey adds the perfect touch. I love this wine, just as I loved all three bottles of the 2010 I had over the past year.
