Pouilly-Fuisse, Domaine Olivier Merlin 2008

Inventory Status: 1


Olivier Merlin's humble Macon wines are legendary for their richness and longevity. This Pouilly-Fuisse comes from a southeast-facing hillside vineyard rigorously farmed, plowed, and cultivated organically from the beginning. Olivier and Corinne Merlin use no herbicides or chemical fertilizers. They prefer to plow and to add compost. In the cellar the aim is to maintain the purity of the fruit, extracting gently and aging in little new oak. The wine is stirred once a week to add richness and body. After about ten months, the wine is bottling without fining and with just a light filtration. This is intense, mineral, with a spicy note to the fruit. Long and very luscious. Tremendous white Burgundy!
