2020 Aegerter Pouilly Fuisse 1er Cru Au Vignerai - 750ml
Wine By Bok - 9.25/10 stars
In 2020, 22 of the 217 climats of Cru Poilly-Fuisse, produced in the famous Roche de Solutre sector, obtained the premier cru classification, and I was really happy and honored to be able to taste my first bottle of a premier cru from Paul Aegerter’s Pouilly-Fuisse. The quality sends shivers down my spine, not because I was afraid of the wine, but I feel that the quality was way beyond my expectation! A whiff and I was happy with the bouquet, a blend of lemon and lemon blossoms, almost like walking through a field of lemon plantation. The content was stunning, my first sip, I already was sold on the quality. There was a huge amount of minerality, almost steely feeling, very high satisfaction. It didn’t stop at just minerality, the body is so rich and flavorful that gave me a “ying and yang” feeling, which meant it has a beauty of a very balanced mouthfeel, truly a very enjoyable wine and I suspect I will raise it to 9.5 stars once I have a chance to taste it right next to some top premier crus from Puligny Montrachet to benchmark my claim!
