Professional Reviews For This Wine

Burghound | Rating: 87-90

Here the aromatic profile is somewhat fresher and more elegant with floral and pear notes that complement well the rich yet detailed and punchy medium full flavors supported by a firm core of citrus-infused acidity. I like the vibrancy here and while this is rich, there is better overall balance and proportion.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

($39) Green-gold. Spicy citrus and pear scents are complicated by anise and dusty minerals. Crisp and energetic, with light-bodied orange and Anjou pear flavors, gentle minerality and a broad, long finish. Gained weight with air while maintaining energy. Offers impressive balance.

About This Producer

The domaine Saumaize-Michelin is owned by husband and wife team Roger and Christine, who are noted for their skilled vineyard management and winemaking talent in Vergisson. Their land is in the most highly-regarded of the five villages in the Pouilly-Fuisse appellation and replete with poor soil, old vines and mineral-laden rocks. This translates into wines of impeccable pedigree that will please in the present and stun after cellaring.

Wine Varietal: Chardonnay

Arguably the best dry white wine grape out there, Chardonnay is grown all over the globe. In addition to being the backbone of fine white Burgundies, Chardonnay is also one of the three major grape varieties used in producing Champagne. Susceptible to a myriad of complications, Chardonnay berries are relatively small, thin-skinned, fragile, and oxidize easily. Chardonnay grapes can be sensitive to winemaking techniques and more difficult to handle from harvest to bottling than many other varieties. Some producers will use malolactic fermentation (where harsher malic acid is turned into softer lactic acid and carbon dioxide) to reduce crispness and acidity and add a creamy, buttery texture to wines. The "oaky" character of some Chardonnays comes from fermenting or aging which takes place in oak barrels. Once barrel-aged, Chardonnay may take on notes of vanilla or toast. While Chardonnay is produced worldwide, the best can be found in France, the United States, Argentina, Chile, Australia, Italy, New Zealand, and South Africa. Typical descriptors for Chardonnay include mineral, green apple, citrus, tropical fruits, vanilla, butter and smokiness.
