CHALET POUILLY 2010 POUILLY FUISSE

WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS - "The 2010 Pouilly-Fuisse has a decidedly different bouquet to the 2011: slightly richer, more perfumed with dried flowers, apricot blossom and traces of wild honey. The palate is structured, tense and more backward than the 2009, which I suspect will drink sooner. The finish is beautifully focused with supremely well-judged acidity that lends race and tension, hints of blood orange lingering on the saline aftertaste. This is a sublime Pouilly-Fuisse.

Domaine du Chalet Pouilly is a small grower, but small can be beautiful. Father and daughter team of Bernard and Marie-Eve Leger are in charge here, the winery itself founded way back in 1850 on top of the hill overlooking the village of Solutre-Pouilly. In case you were wondering, it is named after the slatted facade of the winery that lends it the appearance of a chalet. Theirs is a small portfolio of wines, though Marie-Eve told me that it will be joined by a 0.4-hectare plot of Macon-Solutre from 2012. The wines are generally aged in used demi-muids except the St. Veran that sees no oak contact. I must confess, being unfamiliar with this name I had no expectations, but I adored these succinctly crafted, mineral-driven wines that you just want to elope with."
