Review a new wine!
  2004 - Fuisse, Chateau Pouilly Fuisse Tete de Cru

 This is a killer white wine. Its color is a scintillating silvery gold. Melon, mineral, chalk, and citrus jump from the nose. On the palate it is just amazing. It is creamy and mouth filling with melon, more mineral and an incredibly long finish. In our tasting, I had to hold off on the next wine just because the flavors here were still lingering around so long. Top notch!

 This is not an unfortunate Italian dirt bomb. Winemaking in Italy has improved tremendously and is ever more appealing to the American palate which this wine makes abundantly clear. Deep purple in color with a slightly brick colored rim, this wine clearly has depth even before taking a sniff. Once in the nose, deep, dark fruits are apparent with a nice hint of blueberry and minimal dusky tones. The palate is rich, ripe and big with a combination of red and black fruits. Strong tannin makes this a good food wine and also one you don't have to drink immediately - it has staying power.
