Domaine Laporte "Les Duchesses" Pouilly-Fume 2018
If you are tired of the modernized style of Sancerre and are looking for something that has more personality and less polish, look west across the river to Pouilly-Fumé. A wealth of smoky minerality and acidity are framed by the grapefruit and lemon/lime. This wine spend 5 months on its lees giving it texture that stands up to the herbal grassiness and pencil shavings. Light hints of mint, orange zest and honeydew melon.
