2015 Domaine Le Clos Noly Pouilly Fuisse Courtelong
We have been looking for an exceptional Pouilly Fuisse for a while now. Though that would seem easy enough, the Pouillys we generally see in this market are either mass produced negociant wines or of the very expensive variety which is not necessarily what we are looking for when it comes to Pouilly Fuisse. That may be attributed to the French keeping the excellent and reasonably priced stuff around to drink themselves, and indeed 80 percent of Domaine Clos Noly's production is sold to the restaurant community in that immediate area. We believe exceptional Pouilly Fuisse should be indicative of the renowned limestone and clay soils which are found in the best of these village vineyards, Pouilly should be bright and food worthy and amazing Pouilly Fuisse should not break the bank. Saturday night we enjoyed dinner with importer Blake Maso and restauranteur Charles Bruen . A main reason for the gathering was we had been waiting for this Pouilly to arrive. Blake had been talking it up, and the 2015 southern white burgs are amazing, well the Le Clos Noly Pouilly Fuisse Cortelong did not disappoint. ( Chardonnay, un oaked ) read more
