Roger Lassarat Pouilly Fuisse Terroir, 2013

I had several heavenly bottles of Roger Lassarat's 2005 Pouilly Fuisse Racine when the wine was 14 to 16 years of age. That's why I was in no hurry to drink this nine-year-old Lassarat Pouilly Fuisse, even though the fruit was not from a prized single vineyard as the Racine was. My patience with this Terroir bottling was a mistake.

Deep yellow but lacks the brilliance of the 2005 Racine. The smells and flavors have some interesting floral and fruit nuances but they are a bit tired. This wine would have been lovely a few years ago, but tonight it doesn't measure up to the brilliance of the 2005 Racine.
