Pouilly Fuissé 'Terroir', Domaine Sève
Here's looking at Fuisse kid...
Tastes like: Ripe Apple. Citrus Fruit. White Flowers. Minerality. Buttery. Racy Acidity.
Domaine Sève is a small family property that creates wines that make big waves.
Their Pouilly Fuiseé 'Terroir' is arguably the young upstart of the range, with racy acidity and zippy ripe citrus fruit. Yet it's still a complex and age-worthy wine and excellent value compared to Domaine Sève's recently promoted 1er Cru wines.
Sylvie and Jean Pierre Sève, the current generation, use oak barrels carefully not only to add flavour but also to allow an exchange between oxygen which patiently develops the wine.
All in all this represents a splendid Pouilly Fuisse and a fine example of why this appellation is finally getting the recognition is deserves.
