This wine has a solid fan club out there, as it is remarkably tasty by any measure, performing like a feinherb off-dry style. This year’s sounds particularly precise and animated. Miam miam (Yum yum).
“The 2018 Montlouis Les Tuffeaux is explosive in the glass. Soaring citrus, floral pear and slate-infused aromatics lead into a rich, creamy palate that fills out beautifully. The 2018 is generous and so inviting, and yet remains airy, with beams of salinity that frame the subtle, nuanced finish. A wine of understatement and class, the 2018 is just gorgeous today. The balance of sweetness, acid and structure is compelling, with the sugar present and yet so well-integrated, in the wine’s magical balance.” 94 Antonio Galloni for the 2018, NOT THE 2019 OFFERED HERE
