Notes from John Gilman:
“The la Poussie vineyard is one of the great lieux-dits to be found in Sancerre. The soils here include a flinty section, along with the more classic limestone and clay of Sancerre, which gives the wine an added degree of mineral complexity. The 2020 La Poussie bottling from the Ladoucette family is beautifully refined and complex on the nose, wafting from the glass in a mix of fresh lime, gooseberry, a lovely mosaic of minerality, fresh-cut grass and a top note of citrus blossoms. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, zesty and complex, with a lovely core, excellent mineral drive and backend lift, bouncy acids and a long, precise and very classy finish. This too comes in listed at 12.5 percent octane and is classically proportioned and very impressive!"
