91+ Pts Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media
"Pale straw. Pungent, high-pitched aromas of citrus zest, brown spices, medicinal herbs, lavender, menthol and crushed stone. Densely packed, fine-grained and light on its feet, conveying a strong impression of inner-mouth tension. This adamantly dry, mineral-driven wine is much more about soil than Chardonnay fruit and finishes with terrific rising length. I'd love to come back to this in five years. (I should note, however, that extended aeration did in fact bring more stone fruit flavors and pliancy of texture.)"
"The signature wine of the estate, the enclosed 3ha parcel is located adjacent to the winery. The vines are 70 years old with an eastern exposition, and the soil is a mix of iron-rich red clay and limestone pebbles. The resulting wine is beautifully textured, with saline notes, prominent minerality and impeccable balance; the most complete wine of the domaine and an essential reference point for this worthy but relatively unknown appellation." - Importer
About the Estate
"You may be wondering why you havenât previously heard about Pouilly-Loché, for which you can hardly be blamed. The entire appellation covers a mere 32 hectares, of which nearly 30% belongs to Clos des Rocs. To our knowledge, no estate-bottled wine from the appellation has appeared in the U.S. in the recent past, despite the fact that the AOC dates back to 1940 and enjoys a strong reputation locally in the Maconnais. As this was our first serious exposure to a full range of cuvees from the appellation, we were eager to understand what, if any, differences in terroir would be evident in the glass. The soils are characterized by iron-rich clay and limestone, often with up to 30cm of dense limestone pebble dispersion at the surface. The resulting wines are leaner than their counterparts in neighboring Pouilly Fuisse and carry a hint of earth, yet they are quite rich in mineral, with enough fruit density to properly support the robust structural elements. Each wine is compelling and exciting to a degree that we have made a significant commitment to the domaine, and will be importing over the coming months each of the seven cuvées produced at the domaine.
"The estate counts 8.6 hectares of vines across seven parcels, principally in Pouilly-Loché, with plots in Macon-Loché and Pouilly-Fuissé rounding out the holdings. No chemical products are used in the vineyard and Olivier is committed to organic processes from start to finish, though he has chosen not to pursue certification. All grapes are manually harvested before a long pressing, followed by alcoholic fermentation using only indigenous yeasts; the élévage varies by cuvée and is detailed in the specific descriptions of each of the wines." - Importer
