2007 Domaine Corsin Pouilly-Fuissé Vieilles Vignes

Picked this up today at the Princeton Corkscrew while walking around town, killing time before lunch at MoC MoC for sushi. I figured this would pair absolutely wonderfully, and it did.

Popped and poured from a half bottle from their white wine fridge, and if I had to guess, the wine was probably about 50 degrees by the time it was served. Bright citrus nose with some lemon, lime zest, pineapple, and the faintest hint of what reminded me of guava, though I could very well be confusing it with another fruit.

On the palate, this wine displayed a nice crispness to it, with just a hint of sweetness. More citrus notes of lemon and lime, a bit of lemongrass, passion fruit, and strawberry. The finish was dry, with nice acidity, and just drank nice and clean. This wine wasn’t overly inspiring but at $12 a half bottle, what do you really want? Would definitely drink this again, and it makes for a nice summer sipper! 89 points. Cheers!
