This is a ripe, rustic and young wine. Unlike the Pouilly-Fuissé from Domaine Thibert Père & Fils, which requires aging, Sangouard’s Pouilly-Fuissé is ready to drink right now!

  • Butter, hay, bright lemon, smoke, and flint meld on a youthful nose. Light-bodied, with lively, lemony acidity, stony minerality, and a lengthy finish. Vibrant and refreshing. Finely tuned—with an instrument’s precision—tension, precise structure, clean fruit flavors and an appetizing savory note on the finish. The texture is rounded with a slight creaminess. This is just beginning to become approachable. Should be hitting its stride in 2015–2016.

    Food pairing: Shellfish, Japanese food, goat cheese

  • Fruit-driven but balanced, with a touch of oak influence apparent. Pear and grapefruit are the leading players with vanilla in a supporting role. There’s abundant, lingering citrus on the finish, the acidity nicely balancing the ripeness of the fruit. A bottle to keep in your cellar until around 2016 or to enjoy now with shellfish.

    Food pairing: Shellfish
