Pouilly Fume Silice 2010
The nose showed sea air, lime zest, salty hard cheeses and herbs. On the palate, it was weightless yet full of flavor with salty minerals on the attack, followed by grapefruit and inner floral notes. The wine's crisp acidity washed down effortlessly and left the flavor of intense grapefruit on the palate.
Acidic and with a pronounced minerality, this wine has aromas of green apple and a bit of citrus. Many other reviews mention salty or ocean-like notes, which I found very interesting and don't think I've experienced in a wine before. The finish shows more of the citrus flavors. This wine is exactly what I was looking for - refreshing, flavorful, and full of Sauvignon Blanc character.
External Reviews for Pouilly Fume Silice
Seine feurige, hoch mineralische Art raubt einem den Atem und betört die Sinne. Am Gaumen zeigt er sich ungeahnt tiefgründig und macht Grosse Freude mit dieser breiten fruchtig- würzigen Aromenpallete. Dies ist ein pracht’s Wein, der saftig und lange nachhallt.
