Disappointing

3 stars

I was probably hoping for too much at this price. A drinkable wine, but without the delicious flinty taste of a good Pouilly Fume.

A very good wine, thoroughly enjoyed by my wife.

4 stars

We would be very happy to buy this wine for our guests (probably 150) at our granddaughter's wedding in July - as well as an equally good claret and an acceptable champagne - provided the supplier could arrange the hire of glasses (Service not available at our local store)

Finest Pouilly Fume

5 stars

I have tried loads of supermarkets, and wine shops for this wine and always come back for the Tesco finest. It is the best!

Not Great

2 stars

Pouily Fume should be creamy. This one is sharp and acidic, and more like a Sauvignon Blanc, that you can get for half the price. Disappointing.

Needs time

4 stars

Although obviously very good now I think it will improve with a few years of maturing. I have had this wine several times of different vintages and they were all good to very impressive. It must not be over chilled to dull the flavour just cool I find is best. The IWSC don't hand out bronze medals for just turning up.

Smooth Drinking

4 stars

Very pleased with this purchase. Pouilly Fume is a favourite and this particular wine had a smooth quality with subtle flavours. Best not to over chill.

Excellent wine

5 stars

I really enjoyed this wine. Reasonably priced when on offer. Well worth a try.

Super

5 stars

I have been buying this wine from Tesco for a few years now and never fail to enjoy it - especially when it is on offer. I have tried many other Pouilly Fume - some more expensive - and always come back to this, my favourite.

Rather poor for a Pouilly Fume

2 stars

This wine was rather flat tasting and acidic. There was a lack of roundness of flavour and bouquet. I would not have guessed that it was a Pouilly Fume.
