|Full-bodied, rich white wine of top quality|
|Receives rave press reviews|
|Powerful, fresh and balanced|
|Excellent match with poached fish with creamy sauce or poultry|
Full yellow in color and a beautiful, complex aroma of overripe yellow fruit, butter and slightly caramel. The taste has a powerful, fresh start and develops in a balanced way. The finish is long and aromatic, with again ripe yellow fruit and toast-like nuances.
Saint Véran & Pouilly Fuissé
Jacques and Nathalie Saumaize make beautiful white Burgundy in the famous appellations Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint-Véran. Their 13 hectares of vineyards are located on the slope of the imposing rock of Vergisson, which dominates the southern part of Burgundy.
They have been working organically for years, but their thirty-year-old son Anthony is taking further steps. Since 2018, the family has started with biodynamics on his initiative. That means even more precise attention in the vineyards and cellars - exactly the power of small-scale wine production.
Specialist Saumaize logically cannot compete on price with much larger wine companies, but leaves them far behind on quality. The lack of overhead and marketing costs (they do almost nothing about that) also dampens the difference in manufacturing costs. You can taste the high quality in the ever limited available, beautiful white Pouilly-Fuissé Sur La Roche.
This Pouilly comes from a small plot with very calcareous soil. The chardonnay sticks are 50 years old. The result is a beautiful white Burgundy, with beautiful, complex aromas and a powerful, yet refined, long-lasting taste. Sur la Roche will receive premier cru status with effect from the 2020 harvest. A justified recognition for this top terroir.
Jancis Robinson - January 2020: 16/20 points | Attractive style
Very chalk-led nose, oodles of acidity and ripe opulent sweet fruit too, just a hint of tinned pineapple. Nicely put together and attractive style.
Tim Atkin MW - Special Report 2018 Burgundy: 92/100 points
The Wine Advocate - August 2019: 92/100 points | Ripe acids, good depth and tension
Bursting from the glass with aromas of orange zest, citrus blossom, beeswax and warm bread, the 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé Sur La Roche is medium to full-bodied, deep and muscular, with ripe acids, good depth and tension at the core and persuasive grip on the finish that suggests it will reward at least a few year's bottle age.
