The 2007 Leonard de Saint-Aubin Pouilly-Fuisse’, with 13% alcohol, scored 17 points out of the possible 20 Dionysian points. It cost under $20 back then. At 12 years old, it was charming. Citrus, apple, some hints of tropical fruit, and perfectly balanced with its acidity.
This is what a 100% Chardonnay wine should taste like; clean fruit and not over-oaked.
It was an “All French night” with some Dionysian friends. That’s why you cellar and age some wines; to share and make any meal a special occasion. The grapes came from hillside vineyards just west of the city of Macon. In Vino Veritas.
