Tasting Notes

Cool and decidedly restrained aromas only grudgingly reveal the notes of green fruit, essence of spiced pear and plenty of citrus elements. The powerful yet quite sleek larger-scaled flavors are tautly muscular before culminating in a strikingly persistence finish that also has a slightly chewy quality to it. Note that this is very firmly structured and a wine that is clearly built to repay long-term keeping. In a word, excellent.

Neal Martin, vinous.com (83), June 2021

Two thirds of the vines are nearly 70 years old. The 2019 Porusots shows a discreet yet crystalline character, taking on a little reduction. Dominique tells me that Porusots is always slow to ripen then slow to ferment. The fruit seems to appear on the palate in slices, of equal ripeness, this has a better balance than its predecessors in the line-up, Bouchères and Goutte d’Or.
