Ratings & Reviews


92 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"The 2018 Pouilly-Fuisse Le Chaneau is bright, translucent and full of energy. A hint of reduction in the aromatics leads to a core of citrus confit, white flowers, mint and white pepper. Aromatically high toned and chiseled on the palate, the 2018 is superb. Bright saline notes round out the precise finish." - Antonio Galloni (Oct 2020)

90-92 Points - Allen Meadows' BurgHound:
"A subtle but not imperceptible dollop of wood surrounds the overtly floral and more citrus-inflected nose of mostly white orchard fruit. The racy, intense and beautifully well-detailed medium-bodied flavors exude a refreshing salinity on the balanced, clean, youthfully austere and attractively dry finale. Good stuff." (June 2020)
