Jean-Max Roger Pouilly Fume 2016
Appearance: Brilliant in aspect, pale gold in colour with green highlights. Aroma: Intense complexity on the nose. The first nose is floral and opens up to notes of ripe, jammy fruit with a hint of orange peel. A subtle touch of vanilla and liquorice complete the bouquet. Mouth Feel: On the palate, the wine is round at first opening up to rich, unctuous sensations that fill the mouth. The finish is heightened by a touch of nervosity. Its flavours linger on the palate with notes of forest undergrowth, ripe lemon and mint. Food Pairing: This cuvée is the perfect complement to the bounty of the sea including crustaceans, shellfish, and raw or cooked fish. It is also marvellous with white meats and goat's cheeses. It is ideal served as an aperitif as a start to a meal, or for enjoying with friends at any time of day.
