The 2015 Pouilly-Vinzelles from Maison Joseph Drouhin is a fine, fine follow-up to their excellent 2014 version. This too had its malo partially blocked in 2015 and was thirty percent barrel-fermented in this vintage. The wine delivers a pure and vibrant nose of lemon, pear, chalky minerality, just a touch of vanillin oak and a topnote of citrus blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and complex, with a plush core, excellent backend mineral drive and a long, zesty and focused finish. The difference between the 2014 and 2015 versions comes down more to stylistic preferences, with the 2015 a bit more plump at the core, whereas the 2014 is more racy and minerally in profile, but both are excellent wines of impressive quality.
