Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A very good Sauvignon Blanc from Loire, France. Pale lemon-green colour with med+ aromas of green apple, lemon zest, white blossom, honey, juniper, vegetal, wet wool and minerality. Typical "cat Pee" aromas evaporate as wine warms up a little.
We don't often comment on tannin in a white wine but this Pouilly-Fume has some mild waxy tannins.
XD and medium-bodied with flavours of green apple, gooseberry, honey, honeysuckle, pear, white pepper, vanilla, and herbs de Provence. Well balanced with a long mouthwatering finsih. Great value at $19.95
Serve well chilled. Pairings: oysters, goat cheese croustini with herbs, fish
Reviewed Mar 25/14
Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pale gold in colour with pronounced aromas of lily of the valley, honeycomb, and grapefruit, the palate delivers additional flavours of lime, honey, green apple, and passion fruit over a stony minerality.
The flavours linger on the refreshing finish.
Enjoy today, or keep until 2015.
Pair with goat cheese, summer salads, and seafood.
Date tasted: February 2014.
Aromas of lime, apple and a flinty smokiness on the nose. Quite an appealing wine on the palate with clearly articulated replays. Dry and crisp. This is an AC-designated wine. Source: Vintages Wine Ratings and Reviews, June 2013

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
