James Suckling, in his review on January 5, 2023, awarded this wine a score of 91. He highlighted its aromatic profile, noting "Apple and fresh hay on the nose." The wine has a medium body with citrus and stony flavors, complemented by a touch of dry-mineral grip at the end.

Additionally, he pointed out that the wine is unfiltered, adding to its authentic and natural character.

Vinous reviewer Rebecca Gibb MW gave the 2021 Terres Blanches a slightly higher score of 92 in her review dated July 1, 2023. Gibb emphasized the wine's texture, stating, "The 2021 Terres Blanches is round and silky with a fine chalky texture that provides a fine, appetizing texture on the finish." She noted the wine's satisfying nature, with a "delightful thread of acidity that keeps it together and your mouth watering." Gibb also mentioned an appealing elderflower character with a subtle creamy background, likely due to malolactic fermentation and time spent on lees, which adds complexity. She concluded that the finish is precise and well-structured, describing it metaphorically as "like a triangle."

Overall, the 2021 Domaine du Bouchot Terres Blanches Pouilly Fume is a well-regarded Sauvignon Blanc that showcases mineral influence, chalky texture, and a balance of citrus and floral notes. It is recommended for those who appreciate a biodynamic wine with a distinct and satisfying finish.
