The 2016 Pouilly-Fuisse La Croix Vieilles Vignes is back, this time after fully 35 months on the lees (readers will not that I reviewed the 30-month version last year). Unwinding in the glass with aromas of golden orchard fruit, toasted nuts, marzipan and iodine, it’s full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with a deep and intensely sapid core, concluding with a long and savory finish. This umami-bomb of a wine invites thrilling food pairings.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035
