Made from a strict selection of the best Sauvignon Blanc grapes, the 2017 Pouilly-Fumé La Demoiselle de Bourgeois opens with a clear, crisp and spicy gooseberry and leafy/earthy bouquet with moral and porcini aromas. The bouquet represents the grape variety as well as the Kimmeridgian marl terroir of Saint-Laurent l'Abbaye, which is said to be the cradle of the Pouilly-Fumé appellation. Partly (15%) fermented in 600-liter oak barrels and aged on the lees for up to 10 months, the 2017 opens deep, precise and coolish on the fresh and finely concentrated nose that exhibits aromas of lemon rind and grapefruit juice along with an earthy undertone. Full-bodied, lemon-fresh and piquant on the palate, the is an intense yet linear and elegant Pouilly with lively acidity, fine bitters and stimulating astringency on the finish. This is another excellent Pouilly-Fumé from Henri Bourgeois with a pure, iodine-inflected and lemony finish that makes it a perfect wine to serve with oysters, fish and Atlantic seafood but possibly even with dark chocolate and candied lemon rind.
