Tasting Note eRobert Parker (WA) : 92/100 Neal Martin The 2014 Pouilly-Fuissé La Verchere offers one of the most engaging aromatics from Barraud this year, very complex with white flowers, smoke and orange blossom, an underlying mineralité ready to be exposed with bottle age. The palate is extremely well balanced with superb tension--an animated, energetic Pouilly-Fuissé with the salinity to encourage you back for another sip. This will give so much pleasure over the next decade. Burghound (BH) : 92/100 Allen Meadows Here the mildly wood-inflected nose flirts with reduction so I would suggest decanting this if you're going to drink a bottle on release. This also possesses a relatively fine mouth feel as the overt mineral streak adds a sense of lift to the broad-shouldered and concentrated flavors that deliver fine depth and even slightly better length. This wine of finesse should also benefit from mid-term cellaring yet be approachable young too if desired. Wine Spectator (WS) : 92/100 (2013) A ripe version, with tropical notes of pineapple and mango, along with butter and baking spice accents. Persistent and complex, ending in a long, harmonious finish. Drink now through 2018. –BS
