Cuvée Domaine du Bouchot, Pouilly-Fumé, 2014


Cuvée Domaine du Bouchot, Pouilly-Fumé, 2014The most balanced, exquisite and nuanced Sauvignon Blanc I’ve drunk in years. Astonishingly pleasurable; no hard herby knocks or jolting hay, clean and smooth like a manicured field, bare hints of the barnyard, much more mineral than grass, stone and flint without the acid, pure satisfaction. Could not, however, stand up to a well-spiced dinner or saffron scented Provencal stew.

 

Price: $17 USD in 2015.

 

Market Liquidity: A rare bird in a flock of New World SB mediocrity.
