Louis Jadot 2005 Pouilly-Fuissé ($23.99)
Transparent straw color. Delicious fresh apple and pear aromas, clean and rather delicate. A bit more forward on the palate, medium-bodied and dry, juicy white fruit and a distinct stony minerality; a tart, cleansing finish makes it an exceptional food wine. Good fruit, minerally, structured and lean, Chardonnay for those who don't think they like Chardonnay. US Importer: Kobrand Corp., NYC. (Sep 3, 2007)
FOOD MATCH: Fine for all but the lightest fish dishes, chicken and pork or a variety of cheese; it served very well with pork cutlets in a light fresh-tomato sauce over conchiglie pasta.

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 WineLoversPage.com 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.
