Saumaize Michelin Pouilly Fuisse Vignes Blanches 2018

White peach, pear aromas; brioche nuances. Mineral, rich and full flavored and complex wine. 

The vines are 40-45 years old of age on average. All of the wines are 100% barrel fermented and 100% M-L fermentation.

Review:
Aromas of pear, citrus oil, white flowers and blanched almonds introduce the 2018 Pouilly-Fuissé Vignes Blanches, a medium to full-bodied, satiny but incisive wine that's one of the more tightly wound, structured bottlings in the range this year. This has turned out nicely and should reward some bottle age.

Saumaize Michelin St. Veran Les Creches 2019

Saumaize Michelin St Veran Les Creches is 100 percent Chardonnay

The vines for Les Creches are situated in Davayé and planted on limestone based soils with a good amount of soft chalk. It is a blend from grapes from two different parcels; one 40 years old and the other over 60 years. The older vine brings subtlety and depth, and the younger vine bring minerality and freshness.

Elegant and fruity nose supported by a good minerality. Round, rich, fresh and well balanced. Luscious honey and citrus flavors with hints of butter and a delicious citrus finish.


Review:

"The 2019 Saint-Véran Les Crèches delivers aromas of pear, cirrus oil and white flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied, textural and gourmand palate that's girdled by bright acids. This nicely balanced wine is already drinking well. - William Kelley"
