Gilles Morat Pouilly-Fuissé Climat Sur La Roche 2016
95pts - Decanter Magazine's June 2018 issue Maconnais Appellations 2016 Panel Tasting
Stephen Brook: Reticent melon nose with a whiff of woodsmoke. It's rich and broad, with weight and flesh, and it’s just on the right side of heaviness thanks to its concentration and mineral bite. Perky and persistent, this should go the distance.
Emma Dawson MW: Sweet, honeyed stone fruit aromas with a waxy elegance. It's very tense and poised on the palate, with a linear focus to the citrus and bright apricot fruit, combining well with a gentle infusion of fresh, peppery vanilla spice. There's a gentle candied sweetness which adds depth, and the fruit remains fresh and bright to the finish, the vervy acidity promising an ageworthy wine.
Matt Wilkin MS: Ripe, savoury melon, grilled nuts and toasted oak scents, with notes of vanilla, orange and stony earth. It has ripe stone fruit flavours on the palate, with a blood orange core. Weighted and balanced, it shows great energy, savoury movement and fine, saline persistence.
