A luscious, multi-layered explosion of mouthwatering blood orange, fresh mineral, baked apple and juicy stone fruit; creamy, opulent and textured with a smoky, nutty, toasty oak core, fine fresh acidity and a luxurious, complex finish.
94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé Le Clos is showing superbly, unfurling in the glass with aromas of honeycomb, mandarin, confit lemon and citrus zest that are deftly framed by a light touch of new oak. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and satiny, with a deep and multidimensional core, lively acids and a long, saline finish. It's the finest rendition of this bottling for several years.
94pts Wine Enthusiast
This smoky, wood-aged wine comes from a walled vineyard next to the Château de Fuissé. Produced from old vines, it has concentrated apple and pear flavors, a touch of spice as well as acidity. The generous, opulent character will allow it to age. Drink from 2022.
93pts Wine Spectator
Offering a mix of peach, melon and lemon curd flavors wrapped in toasty oak, this white also boasts a creamy texture. A beam of acidity at the core drives the lingering aftertaste. Starts out rich and finishes long and clean. Drink now through 2025.
Le Clos is extraordinarily rich with layer upon layer of ripe apple, pair, and spice. The finish is driven by mineral with a firm gripping acidity.
