"The intensely golden-yellow colored 2017 Pouilly-Fumé Terres Blanches is deep yet fine and elegant on the nose that shows notes of rasped hazelnuts, fresh green herbs (coriander), lemon rind and finely milled stones with a hint of iodine. Intense and elegant, this is a full-bodied, fresh and fine Pouilly from calcareous soils, with a stimulating phenolic grip and mineral tension on the finish. The wine conquers the whole palate but doesn't numb your taste buds or nerves and leaves the palate with grapefruit bitters. Lovely. Tasted in January 2021."
