RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Pouilly-Fuissé Reyssié comes from a half hectare of purchased, biodynamically grown grapes courtesy of vines up to 60 years old. It has a clean and precise bouquet that reminds me a little of a fine Chassagne-Montrachet. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, very good salinity, real tension here with a precise finish that is top drawer. This comes highly recommended.
Barrel Sample: 91-93
V 92
Vinous
(22 months of élevage): Bright light yellow. A sexy touch of reduction to the aromas of ripe peach, marzipan and flinty minerality. A bomb of sweet yellow fruits on the palate, with complicating notes of nuts and marzipan. This very rich, ripe, plush wine shows terrific depth and its very long, surprisingly vibrant finish avoids the phenolic edge of the Les Reisses Vieilles Vignes. Harmonious and classy already, this wine will be even better after it's had the chance to lose some of its baby fat.

Burghound.com
This too exhibits a mildly phenolic character on the notably ripe and overtly exotic nose of dried peach and apricot that is trimmed in soft wood. The exceptionally rich, lavish and opulently textured broad-shouldered flavors also brim with an abundance of dry extract while displaying excellent power on the sappy, indeed borderline chewy finish where a touch of warmth comes up. This is also very impressive but I find it to be almost too much of a good thing and thus this will most please those who enjoy super-rich (though not heavy) whites.

Domaine Robert-Denogent  Winery Image

When first tasting the wines of Domaine Robert-Denogent, it is essential to put aside any preconceived notions about the young, over-cropped whites of southern Burgundy. These are wines of a much different class, whose reflection of terroir is one more likely found farther north in the prestigious Côte d’Or. Jean-Jacques Robert took over five hectares of his grandfather’s vines in the Mâconnais just outside the village of Fuissé after finishing law school in 1988. Though most of the harvest had always been sold off to the cooperatives, the small parcels that made up the domaine were already understood to enjoy unique microclimates, producing Pouilly-Fuissés of great pedigree. Jean-Jacques soon came under the influence of two ardent defenders of terroir, the great master of Morgon, Marcel Lapierre, and American importer, Kermit Lynch. Little by little, Jean-Jacques has introduced radical changes to the domaine (while staying faithful to his grandfather’s wisdom about the complexity of the land), finally realizing its full potential. He is now joined by his son, Nicolas.

The Roberts’ individual vineyard parcels are planted with old vines (remarkably so!) on varied soils of granite, schist, limestone, clay, and gravel. Naturally reduced yields imbue the grapes with terrific concentration. The wines undergo a long, slow élévage in barrel that lasts anywhere from fifteen to eighteen months. They are bottled after two winters in barrel, a treatment more common (yet still far from the norm) in the Côte d’Or, and something that really sets them apart in the Mâconnais. At a fraction of the price of the appellations of Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, to which they are often compared by aficionados and critics alike, the wines of Robert-Denogent offer tremendous value, wonderful richness, and impressive complexity. An added attraction for some—they age sooner than their counterparts to the north.

The source of some of the most sought-after white wines of the Mâconnais, Pouilly-Fuissé is produced exclusively from the Chardonnay grape and tends to be slightly richer in style than wines from its northern neighbor, the Côte de Beaune—mainly due to warmer weather. Wines from Pouilly-Fuissé have some versatility; they can be enjoyed young and can also often improve with a little time in the cellar. Pouilly-Fuissé wines are considered some of the best values for white Burgundy.

Similar to the Côte de Beaune, the soils of Pouilly-Fuissé are mainly limestone and clay. The appellation includes the communes of Fuissé, Solutré (which includes Pouilly), Vergisson and Chaintré. The richest Chardonnay comes from Fuissé and Solutré-Pouilly, whereas the Chardonnay at higher elevation, from Vergisson, expresses more minerality and finesse. Pairing Pouilly-Fuissé with lobster or King Crab will bring great joy not only to your palate—but also your pocketbook!

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
