Domaine Joseph Mellot 2018

€590 Flacon de 10cl

With a pale yellow colour and delicate hints of gold, Pouilly-Fumé is a dry white wine with a delicious floral and herbaceous nose and notes of preserved lemon. The citrussy palate of this Pouilly-Fumé makes for a zippy yet fruity wine with mineral notes in the finish
