Jean Pabiot Pouilly-Fume Domaine des Fines Caillottes 2015
100% Sauvignon Blanc. Intense, laser-focused aromas and flavors of citrus fruits, white peaches, flowers, and minerals with a rich texture. The finish is long, fresh, and pure. Delicious by itself as an aperitif or excellent served with most hors d'oeuvres and appetizers, seafood, fish, or certain cheeses like goat cheese in particular.
