2014 Pouilly-Fuissé “La Croix”

Domaine Robert-Denogent

2014 Pouilly-Fuissé “La Croix” Domaine Robert-Denogent - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

   $46.00

When I was growing up in laid-back 1970s California, Pouilly-Fuissé was the end-all-be-all of French whites among the, admittedly limited, sophisticated (read fancy) wine connoisseurs I knew. Thankfully, it never had a sketchy reputation to overcome like its frumpy American counterpart, the watered-down and now delegitimized “California Chablis” pumped out by the hoseful into vast jugs. Winemaking certainly has improved in the Golden State since then. Still, this Pouilly-Fuissé is what California Chardonnay should aspire to. Round and fleshy, with a chalky mineral backbone and bursting with citric juiciness, this sexy, supple, and voluptuous wine has a heady, velvet texture topped by a bright, vibrant acidity, like a glorious chapeau atop Mae West’s golden curls. It’s the total package. –Jennifer Oakes
