With subtle stone fruits, locust tree flowers, fresh hazelnuts and spicy aromas and flavors, the wine’s finish is intense and spicy. Graciously balanced between richness and freshness, the wine shows very harmonious mineral expression. This wine’s balanced freshness and structure allow it to age gracefully but with vibrancy.
Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2011 Pouilly-Fuisse Sous Vergisson has an intense nose with more prominent oak, though it is knitted into the citrus fruit. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry. There is good weight in the mouth with plenty of orange zest and quince notes enlivening this Pouilly-Fuisse to its very finish. (Aug 2013)
Sous Vergisson is a 7.5-acre parcel, located in the Croux vineyard just below Vergisson Rock. With an excellent south-southeast exposure, 10-35 year old vines are planted in calcareous (limestone) clay soil, which imparts finesse, complexity and volume to the wine. For this classic Pouilly-Fuisse, fermentation takes place half in enameled tanks and half in oak barrels, which add oxygen and complexity. No new oak is used and the barrels are 2-5 years old to ensure as pure an expression of terroir as possible.
