    Wine & Spirits Magazine:  "Antoine Vincent describes 2013 as a cold vintage on the marl soil at Les Brûlés, until it turned hot in September, further challenging the grapes.  He decided to block malolactic and cut back on lees stirring to maintain the freshness of his Pouilly-Fuissés.  This one, from vines planted in the 1960s on a south-facing slope behind the château, shows its brûlé provenance in a grilled peach flavor, the wine’s full-on richness layering spice notes of cumin and curry with tart lemon and limestone acidity.  It’s zesty in spite of the richness, ending on smoky notes of oak.  For grilled langoustines."  Apr 2016

    Winery:  "Yellow golden color, the Les Brûlés shows aromas of ripe fruit, jam, melted sugar, hints of smoke and some delicate vanilla on the nose.  On the palate, the attack is fresh and aromatic, round and dense, with a good fatness and a nice volume.  Acacia honey, toasted bread some oak and hazelnut delicately smoked towards the finish.  A full-bodied wine, rich and powerful."
