Domaine Tinel Blondelet Pouilly Fume 2017. $31.95 per bottle / 12 packs

25 year old Sauvignon Blanc vines grown on limestone and kimmeridgian marls (oyster shell fossils). Annick has produced a polished Pouilly Fume with ripe white floral and fruit nuances, beaming acidity keeps the wine exact and sharp.  A mineral-laced smoky accent with fresh citrus peel and powerful intensity.
