Pouilly Fuisse, Marc Dudet, Waitrose

blog 33

Again not cheap and not everyday wine. Pouilly Fuisse is one of my favourites along with pretty much all white burgundies. At this price I have expectations and naturally hope the wine will be markedly better than the £8 wines I go for. It often isn’t and I have had so many disappointingly ‘meh’ Chablis that I avoid buying it, unless I’m in France. I suspect that the French keep the best for themselves…  This wine was excellent and is currently a contender for my Xmas day fish-course wine.

Tasting notes: Promising golden colour. Notes of vanilla, butter, cream – all of which suggest French oak aging – but unusually and surprisingly this is unoaked. Had a really delicious minerality to it.
