Saumaize-Michelin Pouilly-Fuisse Les Ronchevats 2019


In Stock

“Exhibiting aromas of vine blossom, white peach, melon and buttery pastry, the 2019 Pouilly-Fuissé Les Ronchevats is full-bodied, glossy and unctuous, with a rich, textural attack and a layered, muscular mid-palate. This is another powerful, broad-shouldered 2019 from clay-rich soils. Drink: 2021-2029. 91 points

Christine and Roger Saumaize preside over this fine 9.5-hectare domaine in Vergisson. Biodynamic farming, limited yields and manual harvesting are the fundamentals of their approach in the vineyards, followed by fermentation in barrel and maturation on the lees. The various parcels have been vinified separately since 1985. The wines are concentrated and structured, exemplifying the artisanal excellence that seems to proliferate in Vergisson, and the fleshy, concentrated 2019 vintage represents a fine success.
