CHATEAU DE VERGISSON POUILLY FUISSE MIXED CASE
Here is a Pouilly-Fuisse masterclass-in-a box. Two Pouilly-Fuisse as different as night and day. Rather like the Chablis left-bank, right-bank terroir tasting. Includes 6 bottles of each, includes Ground Shipping:
Chateau de Vergisson Pouilly-Fuisse 2016
These are vines from Stephanie’s part of the valley, assembled from several parcels from the base of the rock at Solutré. This is classic Pouilly-Fuisse. Pure gold, with lemon-drop fruit, a touch of tannin to give it structure, and lovely acidity. So round and balanced, you want to chew it.
Château de Vergisson Pouilly-Fuisse ‘Sur la Roche’ 2016
These are vines from Pierre’s end of the valley, on the slopes of the Vergisson outcrop. The vines, almost 100 years old, were planted by Pierre’s great-grandfather. And old vines on a parcel like ‘Sur la Roche’ gives a depth and concentration that is hard to believe. Elegance, tension, freshness, notes of oysters and the sea, iodine. And of course the minerality carries the finish on forever. Outstanding.
