Château Fuissé : Pouilly-Fuissé Village "Tête de Cru" 2015
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2015 Pouilly Fuisse Tete de Cru is a blend of 40 different parcels on slate or sandy soils. There are around 20 to 25 vinifications of individual plots matured in 70% oak barrels (around one-quarter new), the remainder in stainless steel, where, in order to preserve balance, the malolactics were stopped for the cuvées aged in stainless steel tanks. The aromas gradually unfurl here with scents of white flower and hazelnut, touches of strawberry, or rather punnet of strawberry developing with time. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity and fine mineralité, with good salinity and a slight oiliness to the texture on the finish. I like the depth here, and while it does not possess enormous length, it has a linearity and tension that is commendable, given the warmth of the growing season.
