Food Pairings for Domaine du Vissoux Fleurie les Garants
92 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): [$28 list] ...from lower down than Poncie and with southwestern inclination, but essentially the same soil -- lacks the dark color that marks so many 2009s. Scents of fresh blackberry and purple plum adumbrate a generously juicy palate with a vivid sense of fruit pit and berry seed. The Poncie is cooler in personality though still full of energy, whereas the Les Garants is richer on the palate and more overtly (in this case black-) fruited. A pungent smokiness and tactile sense of stony underlying minerality characterize this wine's positively gripping finish, and as it opens, elusive hints of spice and further minerality emerge. I would plan on following this outstanding value for half a dozen years, if not longer. (Aug 2010)
