Fluid: Caves Des Perrieres Pouilly Fume (2009)

November 27, 2010

My newest discovery in the category of great everyday wines under $15?  Caves Des Perrieres Pouilly Fume, 2009. Versatile enough to drink with most any meal, cheap enough to use while cooking said meal, this crisp white is a sure bet.

very versatile

When I went wine shopping, I specifically requested a wine that would cut through rich dishes (which I’ve been a bit obsessed with lately). The steward immediately walked toward this French bottle, stating that it was bright, smooth, and mildly fruity. He was right- and it only cost me 11.99 to find out. It’s actually got a bit of a lime taste to it, a nice mellow acid that cuts through everything from short ribs to shortbread. Enjoy!

    Have just finished a bottle today:
    and found it to be half way towards a very nice Sancerre.
    Am now looking for a case.
