THIS is Pouilly Fume! Super pale, almost transparent in color. Lovely nose of stone fruits, lemon, and gooseberry (oh the gooseberry) Tons of citrus on the palate with brilliant acidity and a streak of minerality that won't call quits. Lean, focused, clean, and crisp just the way an easy drinking white wine should be. This is refreshing stuff with no semblance of oak or anything else to weigh it down. Very mineral driven and angular on the finish.
