The Berger family farms eight acres of east-facing vines, their age ranging from 30 to 60 years, in the village of Pouilly. This wine picks up on the clay-limestone soils with its clean focus and direction, a lovely pale chardonnay that lasts with fresh butter scents and subtle notes of bloomy rind cheeses, with which it would pair well. Bring on the Epoisses. 91 Points by Wine & Spirits.
