Eric Forest 2001 "La Côte" Pouilly-Fuissé ($15.00)
This clear, light-gold wine makes a simple but persuasive statement on the nose and palate: Fresh, sweet apples, ripe and full, pure fruit over stony minerality. It's not a complex wine, but startling in its clean, lasting purity. US Importer: North Berkeley Imports, Berkeley, Calif. (Dec 23, 2003)

FOOD MATCH: Perfect with a classic Burgundian treat, gougères, airy Gruyere cheese pastry puffs.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
