2015 Domaine Renaud Pouilly-Fuissé "Les Bouthieres"

SKU #1430787 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Lightly and subtly wood aged, this wine is impressive and rich. It has a dense texture, with a spicy, pepper edge to contrast with the ripe yellow fruits and acidity. It is still an amazingly young wine, taut and needing to age further. Drink from 2019. (RV) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

K&L Notes

Once in a great while you find wines from the Mâcon so good that tasting them blind you are forced to apply some much higher (and more expensive) appellation to it. Often, such a wine comes from hillside vineyards, with better drainage and cooler nights. This is such a wine, from the slopes below the giant monolith of rock that is Solutré. Domaine Renaud is a small operation, making Mâcon, Pouilly-Fuissé, and St. Veran from 12 hectares of estate vineyards. Their cellar is modern, and they use upright ovals for many of the wines, and stainless for others. This value is a great alternative to California Chardonnay and an entry into white Burgundy.

We tasted this wine for the first time last year during the annual visit to Domaine Renaud. This is a more luscious style than you might expect from them, the oak treatment is longer (30 months) and, thanks to the 2015 vintage, the fruit is delectably ripe and round. Only 500 bottles of this particular wine were made so get your hands on some and put it in your cellar. This one has an intensity to it that will benefit from some time.
