The 2021 Domaine Saumaize-Michelin Pouilly-Fuissé Les Tilliers is a Chardonnay from the Maconnais sub-region in Burgundy, France. This white wine, bottled under a cork closure, has an alcohol content of 13.5%. Known for its understated elegance, it has been well-received by professional wine reviewers.

Neal Martin from Vinous awarded this wine a score of 90, emphasizing its balanced and lively character. He describes the bouquet as "understated" initially, but notes it opens up with time to reveal "orange blossom, Golden Delicious, and peach skin." On the palate, it presents a "saline entry" and is marked by a "marine-influenced finish." Martin concludes that while it may not be built for long-term aging, it certainly has "a skip in its step" and suggests it can be enjoyed between 2023 and 2033.

Burghound, another esteemed reviewer, gave this wine a slightly higher score of 92 points. The review highlights the wine's "elegant and exceptionally pretty aromas" dominated by "white flower, lemon-lime, and essence of pear scents," with a subtle touch of wood. The palate is described as having a "lovely sense of both vibrancy and sophistication" with "strikingly textured and lightly stony flavors." The review concludes by noting the wine's "fine persistence on the agreeably dry and refreshing finish." Burghound advises that this promising effort would benefit from some patience to develop more depth.

Overall, the 2021 Domaine Saumaize-Michelin Pouilly-Fuissé Les Tilliers is a Chardonnay that showcases the finesse and vibrancy typical of high-quality Burgundy whites. Both reviewers highlight its aromatic complexity and balanced palate, making it a noteworthy choice for those who appreciate refined and energetic white wines.
