In bright white gold with subtle silvery reflections, the wine appears clear and shiny in the glass.
If strength and sensitivity are merged into one unit, one can prepare for gustatory moments of bliss. In addition to the subtle exoticism of ripe pineapple, star fruit and papaya, a finely balanced spice of green pepper, fresh turmeric and tobacco leaf is the second pillar of the aromatics of this Pouilly-Fuissé. Essential notes of honeybush tea and orange oil provide, hand in hand, with delicate smokiness for the finishing touch.
Silky and with the delicacy of calligraphic brushstrokes, the 2016 "En Chatenay" from La Soufrandière of the Bret Brothers appears on the palate. Its yellow-fruity essence is dressed in the finest garment, tailor-made from a free-floating, easy-drinking acidity and gossamer tannins, which add freshness to the sovereign middle weight through small-particle bitterness and let the bottle become frighteningly swiftly empty.
This is how sophisticated Burgundy goes paired with salable looseness.
