Château Fuissé Pouilly-Fuissé Tête de Cru 2014 – $36,75. A good-to-great white Burgundy that makes its appellation looks quite good indeed.

3.5 out of 5 stars

I always get a little kick out of good gateway wines. Y’know, those wines coming from famous appellations but still selling at a decent enough price to let you sample the good stuff without remortaging the house? Well that’s exactly what this burgundian Pouilly-Fuissé does, and it does it very well indeed. This is a rather rich and quite expressive wine proving itself a worthy introduction to the typical amandine/wet wool/flinty trypes that usually characterizes the best Burgundy whites – and with an undeniably “southern” style. Fruit-wise, this is rather mature, with golden apple and white peach notes taking the front stage, but always with enough acidity to keep the palate nice and tight. This is more than decent B4B considering the AOC as well as the overall quality of the vino. Some fine juice fo’sho’!
