Probably a bit young, tightly wound and wonky. Huge acid on the palate. Weighty on the tongue. Big texture. All crushed rock on the sides of the tongue. Could definitely use some time to come together, but the austerity is nice too.

Still to you g and fizzy, needs a bit more time to calm and find its balance, gold color, green apples, citrus, fresh cute grass, medium body, crisp acidity, full of line and green apples, medium fresh finish. My score 86, from experience it can do and hopefully will do better when tasted in 2017, drink to 2020

Delicious, dry white. Just what this palette has been searching for. Not too acidic or sweet. Perfectly balanced. Enjoyed with the fresh fish appetizers..

Dunque il confronto improponibile. de Ladoucette 2008 pur non essendo top gamma , belli i profumi freschi il colore verde oro , pompelmo , a bicchiere vuoto si sentono i profumi tipici .. In bocca grande freschezza.
Inama -Vulcania 2009
Cioè raccontatemi di questo vino.
Prima volta che lo bevo . Colore oro oro
Profumi evoluti e brevi , in bocca pesante , freschezza zero alcol che disidrata. Finale amaro. Nessun segno di maderizzazione , ma in decadenza.
Non capisco se è lui così o se non ha retto!! Help

Profumi di erbe , leggera foglia di pomodoro si accompagna a frutti tropicali mai stucchevoli.

A delicious Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire valley. The style is so different than the kiwi style, less smooth yet so much more elegant.
Straw color, sexy nose of lime, crushed rock, grapefruit and minerals, medium smooth body with perfect balancing acidity, crisp, fresh, and tempting. The combination of citrus and minerals keeps it interesting and every sip reveals another part of the mosaic. Delicious fresh finish. Bottle was gone so fast, I should secure a case. My score 89, drink to 2018.

2013 vintage. Rich, opulent Pouilly-Fume, atypical...tropical. Reminiscent of Dagueneau's Buisson Renard 2006. Intriguing in the sense that it develops a character closer to a dry Muscat than a Sauvignon Blanc/Gris. Interesting but do not look for this vintage if you like classic PF.

Rich aromas of flint, honeysuckle, gooseberries, and wet straw. Mouthfeel is acidic and slightly bitter. Feels like some skin contact rendering great texture and weight, but bitterness is a little off putting.
