2007 Regis Minet Pouilly Fume

I was looking forward to trying a Pouilly Fume after all the Sauvignon Blancs I've drunk this summer to see what the difference is since they use the same grape.  I was in for a let down.



This 2007 Vielles Vignes Regis Minet from the Loire ran me in the $25 range, and it's another example of higher-priced wines not necessarily being better.

It was about the tartest wine I've ever drunk, almost like acidulated water.  More lime than lemon notes to my tongue, or maybe lemon-lime.  I did get a little of the SB grassiness.  The nose wasn't anything to sneeze at.

Other reviewers have reviewed this vintage pretty highly.  Maybe I just got a bad bottle.
