Domaine Robert-Denogent Pouilly-Fuisse
A beautiful expression of Chardonnay from Burgundy brought to the country by the wonderful importer Kermit Lynch. These originally retailed for $40 a bottle, we have a case available at $20 a bottle. Here is the description from Kermit Lynch: "They're are onto something very special in the rolling hills of the Mâconnais, crafting wines with a level of purity and drive that all Chardonnays should aspire to achieve. The first step is a diligent selection of terroirs: the lieu-dit in question here, La Croix, features rocky schist soils home to eighty-five-year-old vines. In the cellar, the wine ferments slowly with natural yeasts and ages in barrel for almost two years untouched on its fine lees. Finally, it is bottled unfiltered with a minimal sulfur dose. The 2013 edition comes out rich, generous, and toothsome, with layer upon layer of orchard fruit, flowers, and a subtle creaminess. Upheld by an intense, biting, stony sensation, this masterpiece will drink beautifully for many years."
