Editorial Reviews for J.J. Vincent Pouilly Fuisse "Marie Antoniette"
Minerals, earth and a subtle nuttiness greet the nose. Time reveals a nice floral cast that helps to illuminate the delicate citrussy aromas here. Clear, precise and vibrant on entry, this open with very clean flavors of heirloom apples, minerals and dried lemon pith. There;s an edginess to the palate and while the flavors are a bit simple this remains interesting and fresh in the mouth. Finishing with zesty freshness and inner mouth perfumes of apple peels and flowers, this entices you to enjoy another sip. 88pts
Nicely floral with hints of talc and old wood on a nose, showing off a bit of peachy fruit. Broad and gently soft though with solid acids here. The texture is both rich and rather seamless, with an easy style that allows the apricot pit, apple and slightly white peach fruit to shine through. The finish is fairly short though with nice mineral drive. This is a textural winner, easy to drink and well balanced, though I’d like to see a bit more depth of flavor. There is a hint of bitterness that might be off-putting to some, but it really shows off the fruit well, adding contrast. 88pts
