R. Pouillon 'Les Terres Froides' 2016
“This is R. Pouillon's 'secret-wine' as it comes from a peaceful haven on the edge of a forest on the Mountain of Reims. It is only austere when it comes to its name, evoking the parcel’s northern exposure. The latter underscores the chalky subsoil’s character and produces a wine with a special kind of expression, brought about by crispness and salinity.
