Eric Forest, L’Ame Forest Pouilly Fuissé 2016, Maconnais, France
Tasting Note: A fresh and elegant Pouilly-Fuisse that benefits from ripe fruit while remaining in balance.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of fresh-cut golden apple, pear, white-peach stonefruit, lemon-citrus, blossom and green plum.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied Pouilly Fuisse has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and completing with a lemon-citrus-infused medium finish.
The wine is creamy in texture with definitive notes of minerality which present a pleasing combo of textures and tastes along with some light notes of vanilla baking spice.
A chardonnay of Mâconnais fruit from a slightly-warmer-fruit vintage.
Price: $30 (I paid $27)
