ready-improve2016 Pouilly-Fuissé, Vieilles Vignes, Olivier Merlin

Product: Y7787B
  • Ready, but will improve


The fruit is mostly from 75- to 80-year-old vines in the village of Fuissé. These south-facing plots are chalky but also reach high temperatures in the summer. The wine is broad-shouldered and powerful, yet with spine-tingling acidity. Packed with ripe peach, apricot and a flinty mineral feel, this is weighty without being clumsy. Drink 2020-2024.
