The touch of spice in this wine adds richness to its white fruits. It gives a wine that is both ripe and textured, with lively acidity at the end. This will be a fine wine from 2021.  Roger Voss

This domaine’s 1.6-acre Aux Bouthières parcel is deep clay without calcareous rock, planted to vines 55 years old. In a lineup of Pouilly-Fuissé, it stands apart, the terroir speaking in the complexity of the wine. The flavors are bold and completely clean, and though the entire lot aged for a year in oak barrels (30 percent new), the wood influence comes through in cedar and foresty highlights, in richness adding to the elegance of the citrus and apple flavors. A brisk Pouilly-Fuissé suited to several years of bottle age.

92+pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Opening in the glass with notes of ripe pears, confit citrus, nutmeg and warm bread, the 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé Aux Bouthières is medium to full-bodied, rich and textural, with an unctuous, chewy mid-palate, ripe acids and a saline, expansive finish that displays plenty of sucrosity from ripe grapes.  William Kelley

Winemaker Notes

Vibrant straw, green-gold hints. Aromas of true complexity: citrus and orchard fruit, lemon, greengage, pear, peach and honey all mineral wrapped with a subtle oak. Linear yet rich. Classic and elegant.
