Domaine du Chalet Pouilly Saint Veran 2012
|Brand||Domaine du Chalet Pouilly|
Wine AdvocateFrom a three-hectare parcel averaging 55 years in age and matured 7 to 8 months in tank (bottled one month previously), the 2012 St. Veran has a mineral-driven bouquet that expresses the precocity, the ebullience of the vintage. It offers great delineation and sense of place with subtle flinty notes emerging in the glass. The palate is well-balanced with a nicely poised, stony opening that is taut and focused. This is certainly a more mineral-driven than fruit-driven wine and it possesses commendable delineation and tension to the very end. Bon vin! Drink now-2016.
Wine EnthusiastThis Chardonnay is full of ripe apple fruits, but wears its wood aging well with notes of vanilla and toast. It's full bodied and open in style, balancing ripe fruits with a delicate structure and refreshing acidity. It's ready to drink now, but will also improve through 2018.
