As I wrote last year, Guffens's longstanding cuvée "C C" gains an additional consonant this year, thanks to the inclusion of his holdings in Les Crays—typically included in the Hauts des Vignes bottling but demoted this year, as it yielded more than usual—becoming the 2018 Pouilly-Fuissé Les Trois C., a lovely wine that offers up aromas of white flowers, crisp yellow orchard fruit, peach and wheat toast. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and elegantly muscular, it's bright and lively, concluding with a chalky finish. This was raised in barrels, some 30% of which were new. DRink 2022 - 2038.
Bright lemon colour in the glass. Creamy on the nose, but bright and youthful in fruit - hints of lemon, orange and passion fruit. The palate is expressive and rich, with notes of dried citrus peel and a leesy, creamy breadth. The fruit is ripe but fleshy rather than candied. Powerful in texture, making this a very gourmand wine that deserves food.
