Maison Joseph Drouhin, Pouilly Fuissé (Burgundy, France) 2012

($27, Dreyfus Ashby & Co): Pouilly Fuissé lacks the respect the appellation deserves.  Sure, there’s lots of mediocre wine masquerading under the popular Pouilly Fuissé label.   But one taste of Drouhin’s shows why this category is so popular.  Drouhin’s 2012 is mineraly, lemony and stony.  This Chardonnay-based white Burgundy focuses on minerality while their Oregon counterpart, Arthur Chardonnay, has more fruitiness.  Both have the hallmark Drouhin elegance.
