Strangely, Pouilly-Fumé seems harder to find these days than its kissing cousin, Sancerre. Back in the very early 80s, when I was first learning about wine, Sancerre was dead. Pouilly-Fumé was everywhere. It had to do with the popularity of Robert Mondavi's "Fumé Blanc," as Cali Sauvignon Blanc was popularly called back then. I find Sancerre to have more depth, but I'm overgeneralizing.
This is a good, reasonably-priced, entry level Pouilly Fumé. A little on the lighter, herbal side, but very fresh and clean.
Extremely pale silvery-gold. Very herbal, citrus pith nose, with the herbs tending toward the "cat pee" level of pungency initially, then calming down a bit on day two. A very clean, precise gooseberry fruit element shoots through it. Very crisp in the mouth, with mouthwatering acids. Very nice green apply, gooseberry fruit, and a very clean finish. Very little of the pierre-à-fusil (gun flint) smokiness that is characteristic of this appellation, but it's still quite enjoyable, particularly at $14.99, from WTSO.com. B.
