AOP Pouilly-Fumé

Domaine Joseph Mellot 2017

€530 Flacon de 10cl

This straw gold coloured Pouilly Fumé with its silvery rim is a soft dry white wine with a very floral nose of white flowers and the lemony notes of kaffir lime. On the palate, this is a smooth and beautifully textured wine with a fleshy body and good fullness. A nice touch of bitterness brings structure, length and persistence of flavour to the finish. Ideal as a food wine, this Pouilly Fumé will pair very well with turbot, sea bass or sole meunière.
