Domaine du Bouchot, Pascale Kerbiquet Pouilly Fume 2014

Refined summer sipper, elegant dinner aperitif.  What did Hugh Johnson say about PF?  Something like “consistently disappointing.”  I guess, however, it depends on your view.  There is kumquat, orange rind, grapefruit pith, so the bouquet and finish combine from sour to stinging.  But the gobs of unctuous citris provide a long, round finish with a nutty, fresh cut grass flourish.  This certainly isn’t NZ Sauv Blanc.  No, it’s a gift from France.  Wrap it up and serve it with vichyssoise.

 

Price: $17 USD in Seattle.

 

Market Liquidity: It’s the proverbial smiley emoticon.  With a beret of course.
