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.
