Description: You might be wondering why you haven’t 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 this appellation dates back to 1940 and enjoys a strong reputation locally in the Macon region. Rich, ripe, with nectar, and buttercream. Keen minerality with flint stone smokiness. Great texture. Exquisite balance of elegance and power. Clean, lingering, velvety finish.
