Picked this up at the cellar door for about £10. Having tasted it...a bargain. This is seriously well made wine for the price. Has the base gooseberry and acid of well made sauvignon, but mixed with sweeter notes of elderflower, honey and blossom....blended really well. Wouldn't look anywhere else for well priced, serious Pouilly Fume.
I liked this. Admittedly picked up cheap as a bin end, but was pleasantly suprised. Decent nose: waxy, citrus and light floral. Taste: good balance of acididty and flavour(good food wine). Predominantly citrus/lemony (almost reminded me of Ozzy semillon in style if thats any help) but with a bit of buttery/oily feel to balance it.
Hoopla! that's all I can say about htis fine vintage... Got the 1996, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, but hell man what happened to the rest.... So I made a new years resolution to go for odd rather than even vintages and i started with the 1999...The lights were dazzling, the music was fine and the honeys were doing their thang! And I had this moment. The waitress came up to me and asked Cristal or Dom?? SheeEEeet!! I had this honey next to me, she so fine. And I had to act quick. So the man with the plan, my buddy in a hurry, my better half, said DOM 1999! The M to the C to the D to the P. Thta's my beeeatch!!! But the only thing I really hate is that the bubbles get up my nose. So Dom can you make the next vintage flat???
