2008 Les Galopieres Pouilly-Fuissé
Tasting Notes: 13% AVB. Straw colored. Subtle nose, some melon, pear, green apple, a hint of butter. Apple, pear, melon, and citrus all on the palate along with a nutty flavor, very smooth, complex flavors, everything works together without any one standing out. I had a lot of trouble coming up with what the flavors even are, they all work so well together. Excellent acid. Mouth watering. Long finish. Very subtle and pleasant oak. Wonderful wine.
Rating: 4/5, 16/20, 91/100
Price: $19.99 Beltway Fine Wine
A note on ratings: I use the 100 point rating for Cellartracker, even though my palate is still developing. As a statistics geek, I know that the variability in scores works itself out as the number of scores increases. However, my score may not be yours, or Robert Parker’s. I much prefer to use a 5 point (or star, or whatever you want to call it) scale, as it more represents my reaction to wine, which is more simple than a 100 point scale represents. I like the 20 point scale as the more detailed score. On this site, I will provide all three, although the most meaningful are the 5 and 20 point ratings.
