Domaine des Fines Caillottes Pouilly Fume, 2018
Straw-colored with green highlights. The first nose expresses acacia flower and then rapidly reveals fruit: citrus, blood orange, quince and applesauce. A round, fleshy, enticing, and well-balanced palate. Mixed fruit are found: peach, pear, kiwi, mango, with a light acidity up to the finish bringing the ensemble to a peak.
