Pouilly-Fuissé 2005, Vieilles Vignes Domaine Cordier

Tasting note from Burgoblog contributor Andy Cowper: Pale gold colour with a light tint of grassy green. There is a hint of sulphur "bottle stink" and a curious nougat nose. Hint of apricot, nougat continues as does the sulphur. I would have expected more fine-bone minerality from a Pouilly-Fuissé and perhaps a broader body from a vieilles vignes. There are some flinty notes that appear but still masked by the sulphur. It improves as a liquid accompaniment to pitta bread and houmus, which I'm afraid may not sell it to you - and indeed I'm not trying to. A pint of Adnam's does the same, at higher reliability and lower cost.
