"A chamomile lift joins lemon notes on the juicy Mirabelle plum nose on this wine. The palate adds lively and aromatic notes of greengage and almond. All this aromatic intensity takes place against a backdrop of chalky texture framed with brightness and freshness. A wonderful achievement for 2018, the wine has poise, concentration, texture and elegance. -Anne Krebiehl MW" (WE)

Winery Notes:
Croix Senaillet's Pouilly-Fuissé comes from the villages of Solutré and Fuissé. 70-year-old vines, planted on a south and northeast-facing parcel, are grown on Jurassic-era limestone mixed with platy marl. Very low yield.

Bright gold color. The wine expresses delicate toasty notes, subtle caramel, almonds and ripe fruits aromas. The mouth is round, ample. The oak is well integrated giving volume, depth and a juicy finish. This elegant and well-balanced wine shows the minerality of the Pouilly-Fuisse terroir and presents a great ageing potential.
