Wine Advocate-Parker : The 2015 Pouilly Fuisse les Brûlés comes from south-facing vines, and it was the first to be harvested this vintage. It is a challenging parcel because when it is a cold season you have to harvest late because of the clay soils, but when it is warm you have to harvest earlier than other [parcels], Antoine Vincent explained. It is matured in 100% new oak with bâtonnage twice per month. It has a powerful bouquet, with orange rind, grilled almond and a touch of lemongrass that burst from the glass. The palate is slightly viscous on the entry, a slight honeyed texture, powerful and generous with notes of mango, citrus lemon, a light tang of Seville orange marmalade and just a slight bitter tang on the finish. Not a shy or retiring number, it deserves a couple of years in bottle.
