We mentioned before a goal to taste a lot of wines from Burgundy in 2023, so every time we see a new one pop up at Costco, we’re going to try to give it a review.
Here’s a Pouilly-Fuisse that came in at $18.99, and it turned out to be an excellent find. Online we found this wine is selling in the $30-$40 range at several outlets.
Pouilly-Fuisse is known for offering high quality Chardonnay at reasonable prices, and this is a good case in point. Finding good Burgundy under $20 is always a challenge.
The wine pours a medium gold in the glass with aromas of tropical fruit; flavors of green apple, apricot, with some nice mineral notes; well balanced, medium body with good acidity; really lasting in the finish.
What a delight, and a high caliber wine at a fantastic price. Be sure not to drink it too cold or you will mask some of its beauty. This is a nice warm weather pick, and a wine that is super food friendly.
