Pouilly-Fumé Villa Paulus 2016

2019 Hachette Wine Guide – 1 star:

« Of a beautiful intensity, floral and fruity at the same time, the nose appeals by its fineness and its freshness. Supple and slightly tight, endowed with a touch of minerality, this chewy wine offers delicacy. »

Harvested on Kimmeridgian marls – mix of white clay and fossilized shells, this wine can be paired with fish when young and then with poultry or white meats after several years. Smoother and longer than “Les Angelots”, ‘Villa Paulus’ will be excellent with a pike served with white butter sauce, a risotto with porcini mushrooms, scallops cooked in Pouilly-Fumé sauce, or a turbot served with lemon and girolle mushrooms. Aged around 5 – 6 years, it perfectly matches poultry with morel mushrooms, or scrambled eggs with truffle.

Citrus (grapefruit) dominates this very drinkable upper Loire valley wine. Matched well with Lemon-Butter Dover Sole.

Vivino – Dan Russo likes this wine : 3,5/5

Citric fruits. Tart. Color of pale straw.

 Cellar Tracker – 12/21/2017 – Ianttuck likes this wine: 90 Points

Strong citrus aromas increasing into a vegetal almost asparagus note. Meyer lemon on the palate. Doesn’t quite have the mineral backbone of its sancerre cousins but enjoyable.

Vivino – David Rosengrave – 199 ratings – Rated on May 19th 2016 : 4,0/5

Great sauvignon blanc, well balanced. Crisp and fresh without being too acidic.

 Vivino – Danny Leong – 1169 ratings – Rated on Sep 20th 2016 : 4,0/5

Light gold lemon colour. Gooseberry greets the nose followed by a mix of floral and citrusy aromas. Dry, sharp fresh acidity with good dose of minerals. Medium finish. Pairs wonderfully with steamed prawns.

 Vivino – Alvin Lee – 62 ratings – Rated on Mar 11th 2016 : 4,0/5

Good structure, very easy drinking but with character.

Vivino – Mrdavebot likes this wine : 3,5/5

French miners were sent to mine for extreme minerality and came back with this. The man that sent them was pleased with their work.

Vivino – Larry DeGan likes this wine : 4,0/5

Well balanced with a luscious mouth feel. A hint of smokey oak on the finish, but not overdone.

Vivino – Theresa Cater likes this wine : 4,0/5

Dry for a Sauv but changes wonderfully with food. More mineral with oysters; soft and fruity with Hawaiian poke; tart citrus with tomato glazed grilled fish.

Vivino – Loren Kreiss likes this wine : 3,5/5

Crisp, sweet and spicy with flavors of pineapple, lime and ginger. Excellent value.

Vivino – Nick Thomas likes this wine : 5/5

This is a classy pouilly fume. Good weight of lemon and lime fruit on the palate with plenty of attack. Very long with hints of that classic smokey flinty finish. One of my favorites for summer drinking!

Cellar Tracker – 29/03/2015 – bjlcrucrazy Likes this wine: 94 points

2 years in a row now this is my favourite expression of Sauvignon Blanc!!! Just gorgeous floral nose, beautiful fruit, minerality, balance. One of my favourite wines

Cellar Tracker – 09/03/2015 – NostraBacchus Likes this wine: 89 points

Tasted at big merchant tasting. Nice aromatics of gooseberries, chalky minerality and a touch of grass. It’s medium-bodied and very fresh, with medium-high acidity and a good finish.

Vivino – Markus Loh – 141 ratings – Rated on Nov 2nd 2015 : 4,0/5

Clear straw yellow, medium nose of faint guava, wet gravel and goose berries and slight manolatic fermentation. High acidity, medium dry, taste of fresh good berries and grape fruit, medium minus body, medium finish

 Vivino – Kristian Fjeldgaard – 877 ratings – Rated on Mar 9th 2015 : 3,5/5

A very elegant wine. Some gooseberry and lemon fruits. It is medium to fullbodied on the palate showing some smoky notes. Very good with salads and ceviche.

 Vivino – Kerstin Kothrade – 300 ratings – Rated on Oct 29th 2014 : 3,0/5

Greetings in green embark from the glass in a comfortable intensit, moving into tropical flavours on the palate, a toasty medium finish for a fair experience. This would be a preference to a NZ counterpart.

 Vivino – Peter Mccrae – 96 ratings – Rated on Mar 17th 2014 : 4,0/5

Fruity, not too sweet, good value

Loved this one. Great balance, gets better after 10-15 min.

Cellar Tracker – 04/05/2012 – Capt Cutlass wrote: 90 points

Classic cool climate Sauvignon Blanc nose of gooseberry, green apples, straw, with a honeysuckle sweetness. Very expressive aromas which jump out of the glass. Enjoyable palate: white grapefruit, bitter gooseberry, chalky, mineral. Medium plus finish on opening. Somewhat in the NZ style but more mineral and alcohol completely masked (12.5%). Eminently quaffable and incredible value! 90-91

Wonderfully aged. Almost on the other side of maturity which added pleasant funkiness to palate.

Vivino – Jamieson Bryan – 261 ratings – Rated on Jun 10th 2015 : 4,0/5

Dry fruity and smells of socks – paired with mini calamari and bacon bits

Vivino – DrinkInsider – 619 ratings – Rated on Aug 26th 2014 : 3,5/5
