Sancerre Blanc ‘Thauvenay’ 2017

Pouilly Fumé ‘Villa Paulus’ 2017
89 Points : « Named after the Roman villa that once existed in Pouilly-sur-Loire (and which gave its name to Pouilly), this wine comes from old vines giving concentrated citrus and green-fruit flavors. Bright, crisp and tangy, the wine could do with some aging. Drink from 2019. »
