Verget Les Combes Vieilles Vignes Pouilly Fuisse Burgundy 2020
22 Mar 2022
This wine extracted the grapes from 70 years old vines, thus the Vieilles Vignes status. We have been following this plot for many years; particularly the 2016 vintage, we bought it in hundreds of bottles, and it has been a flagship Pouilly-Fuisse, it was big and chunky, very well built, mascular and fruity style. This 2020 vintage is surprisingly submissive, it did not stress on it’s past pedigree, instead, it’s showing it’s feminine side; very balanced, layered and great saline finish with great finesse. The acidity is also not as pronounced as the past vintages.
