Winemaker Notes:

Yellow golden color, the Les Brûlés shows aromas of ripe fruit, jam, melted sugar, hints of smoke and some delicate vanilla on the nose. On the palate, the attack is fresh and aromatic, round and dense, with a good fatness and a nice volume. Acacia honey, toasted bread some oak and hazelnut delicately smoked towards the finish. A full-bodied wine, rich and powerful.

Fermentation in new wood has given this small-production, single-vineyard wine extra richness. Lightly smoky, the wine is ripe, with white fruits balanced by juicy acidity. It will be better from 2020.

Complex, revealing clean lines and well-defined flavors of vanilla, peach and lemon, with a hint of lanolin. Intense and long, featuring a persistent finish that echoes spice and picks up a mineral note. Drink now through 2025. 250 cases made, 60 cases imported.

Aromas of honeycomb, fresh pastry and minty yellow orchard fruit introduce the 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé Les Brûlés, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping wine that's broader and weightier that the Combettes, which remains nicely balanced, with lively acids and chalky structuring extract.
