Verget Pouilly Fuisse Sur La Roche 2017
15 Oct 2019
Lately I paid more attention to Pouilly Fuisse, as I think it’s an appellation that’s quite overlooked and under appreciated. The region was not as prestigious as famous appellations like Puligny Montrachet nor Meursault, but there are gems to be found, and prices are very reasonable. There’s no 1er Cru or Grand Cru found at this appellation, so to purchase Pouilly Fuisse, the reputation of the winemaker is very important. I have a lot of faith with Verget, as they’re very well known in the market that Verget produces once of the best Pouilly Fuisse. This Sur La Roche has a nice bouquet of sweet pear, mild and not overpowering faint fruits. I must praise the content, as the key here is that this Sur La Roche possessed a lot of finesse, plus the fruits are definitely not the overpowering sort, very shy, very passive type. The quality easily approaches those 1er Cru level wines from Puligny Montrachet or Chassagne Montrachet.
