93, Wine Advocate; 93 Points, DecanterDecanter: “In 2020 the balance is particularly deft, with a ripe apple fruit enlivened by crisp lemon peel notes and a saline undercurrent. The texture is dense but very elegantly balanced, and there is no sense of heaviness at all. This is top-flight Pouilly-Fuissé. The vineyard is just below the Rock of Vergisson, with 50-year-old vines that face due south. The exposition delivers richness, the limestone delivers minerals.”Wine Advocate: “The 2020 Pouilly-Fuissé 1er Cru Les Crays has turned out nicely, mingling aromas of orange oil and citrus blossoms with notes of nutmeg, peach and pastry cream. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, it’s textural and enveloping, with racy acids and a long, mineral finish.”Allen Meadows, Burghound: “A moderately exotic nose is composed of notes of pineapple, lychee, passion fruit and enough wood to merit pointing out. There is again fine volume to the equally sappy and attractively textured flavors that exude both warmth and minerality on the clean and reasonably dry finish. The warmth of the 2020 vintage is more apparent here though not so much as to materially detract from the overall sense of balance.”Winery: “Arguably the most concentrated cru with equally compelling minerality and precision. Made with indigenous yeasts.”12 months in barrel (20% new), then 3 months in stainless steel
