June 2008, Wine Spectator Insider issued a Special Report on WHITE BURGUNDIES. Bruce SANDERSON, New-York WINE SPECTATOR Tasting Director and Burgundy specialist, tasted more than 570 White Burgundies from the 2005 and 2006 vintages, and came to a very sharp and unique selection of only top 33 wines!

December 2008, as an ultimate reward, 2006 - Gilles NOBLET Pouilly-Fuisse is ranked among the Wine Spectator's 2008 Top 100. Wine Spectator annual roudnup of the Year's Most Exciting Wines!

2006 - Gilles NOBLET Pouilly-Fuisse (Dne de la COLLONGE), belongs to this selection, rated 90Pts (Outstanding):  "Rich and concentrated, showing lanolin, peach and lemon pie aromas and flavors. It's balanced and has the depth to imporve over the next two to three years"

June 2008 WS INSIDER Extract:

Pricings of these few selected wines - including of course most of the the great stars from Batard,Chevalier or Chassagne-Montrachet and some rare production with only 5 or 10cs made - go from $30 to $663 a bottle....

2006 - Gilles NOBLET Pouilly-Fuisse suggested price is $30 a bottle, with 2500cs available for the US market. THIS IS spectacular, this is what we can call a VALUE, and not a "garage" production. Gilles NOBLET is working hard in providing us, constant, super clean and expressive wines for years. Great job!  

BRUCE SANDERSON Article / Report: June 4th: "To date, I have tasted from the bottle, more than 150 white Burgundies from the 2006 Vintage and more than 425 from the 2005. The 2006s seem to fall into two camps, because the Chardonnay ripened quickly over a two to three day period. Those who picked early, heneraly before the Ban des Vendanges (the official start of the harvest), captured vibrant acidity and taut profiles; the others are more forward, lower in acidity and open-knit in style. The latter group should evolve fairly quickly. The vineyards on the hillsides were particularly successful in 2006. By contrast, the more consistent 2005s are denser, more powerful wines that will require time to reveal their charms. The weather in 2005 was more stable, if anything a bit too dry, and these conditions affected the drier, stonier sites."
