Winemakers Tasting Notes

The Pouilly-Fuissé 2014 reveals a nice and brilliant pale yellow color. On the nose, complex aromas of white flowers and acacia, honey and white fruits. On the palate, it is opulent and elegant. You will find floral notes, almond paste and fresh hazelnut. It is a little spicy on the finish.
