Michel Redde – 2014 Barre à Mine, Pouilly-Fumé
This is the first vintage (2014) of Barre à Mine from Michel Redde et Fils.
It comes from their new vineyard in La Roche, which used to be a quarry (see report earlier this year). This new wine is showing very well with attractive weight and mineral quality. It has the balance and acidity that is typical of the 2014 vintage. Doubtless still rather young to drink this single vineyard wine, so I will keep our other bottle for a while before pulling the cork.
