    October 5, 2021 - Refreshing wine on a hot day. Green apple and citrus zest and bright acidity. Went great with grilled salmon.

    September 20, 2021 - Light green in the glass. Green apples, orchard fruits, green grass and citrus on the nose. Green apples and lemon, more cut grass and lemon cream on the finish. Crisp acidity on the attack resolves nicely into a creamier finish. Serve cold for best results. A nice change from Sancere, but probably better as an aperitif.

    August 6, 2021 - Impulse purch @ Costco (re. recent wsj wine article on Pouilly-Fumé)
    13.0% abv - $19

    Opened to serve w/stuffed salmon & caprese salad. Originally served @ about 56f, a little too warm, yet minerality and zest came through and nonetheless a good accompaniment to the richer salmon. Subsequently sampled @ about 10c/50f.

    Clear pale yellow in the glass. Enticing fragrant nose of white apple blossoms with just a hint of sweet honeysuckle. Crisp and lively minerality with green apple and citrus notes on the palate, but I was unable to discern any 'smokiness,' characteristic of some Pouilly-Fumés. Nice acidity, refreshing, pleasant tartness on the long finish. A legitimate 90 point contender. Spouse Endorsed, will buy more.
