2020 Louis Jadot Pouilly Fuisse 1er Cru
The 2020 vintage was quite early, as the growth cycle commenced with a warm period in late winter which was followed by a hot and dry summer. There were a few well-timed rains which moderated the drought conditions and relieved the vines. There were no diseases to contend with and the fruit arrived in a perfectly healthy state. Despite the heat alcohol levels are quite moderate, while acidity was retained. These are wines with lovely balance, a hint of tension, and which are capable of aging.
Aromas of candied lemon and acacia flowers lead to a palate sensation of brioche and wet stones. The texture is broad and expansive while supported by bright and ripe acidity. This white wine has a finish which is quite long and complex that contributes to its amazing elegance.
Tasting Panel, 92 points
Crisp, fresh, and minerally, with great citrus fruit and racy acidity. A lovely Burgundy at a good price.
Wine Spectator, 90 points
A silky, lemon-infused white, with a crisp structure and mineral component underneath. Flashes of peach and apple add depth as this converges on the pastry-inflected finish.
