Pouilly Fuissé, Cuvée Hors Classe, Auvigue, 2003

A great value as this wine offers more complexity and character than many a Meursault or Puligny Montrachet. Very firm, while being rich and powerful this excellent chardonnay is laced with minerals and a firm stony backbone. From the warm 2003 vintage, I’d drink this wine up sooner rather than later as it’s already delicious.
