Maison de Montille Pouilly-Fuissé En Vergisson 2017

90 Burghound

Love great white Burgundy but not the price? This delicious Pouilly Fuisse from one of the Cote de Beaune’s top estates typically sells for up to $50 online, with only a couple of shops stocking it. We were able to score a great price on the last few cases in stock as our supplier makes room for the 2018 and pass the price on to you! Classy and classic in style, the 2017s deliver that perfect balance of superb fruit supported by crisp minerality, bright acidity and tremendous focus from start to finish that makes it my favorite white burgundy vintage since 2014.

Allen Meadows scores it 90 points, saying “This is certainly pretty and if it can add a touch more depth with a few years of bottle age, my rating could be a bit conservative.” Tasting it today after a couple years in the bottle I would say it was conservative indeed! Don’t wait, this will go fast!

90 Burghound “Whispers of the exotic and petrol characters suffuse the ripe white and yellow orchard fruit aromas. Somewhat surprisingly there is even better vibrancy to the nicely detailed and discreetly stony middle weight flavors that display good length on the balanced finish. This is certainly pretty and if it can add a touch more depth with a few years of bottle age, my rating could be a bit conservative.”
