Description by Total Wine of this 100% Chardonnay very accurate--this wine was very enjoyable, however it was of special interest to me due to the following: I have recently been reading more and more about wine and the described aromas--one that has been mentioned is "cat's pee", and the Pouilly Fuse is supposed to be a classic for that. Being a veterinarian, I am quite familiar with that aroma! And this wine definitely has that aroma! But don't worry it doesn't taste like it smells, and I don't mean that as a negative comment! I am overall not a fan of white wine (at least yet) but I would have to say this one has piqued my interest (thus the 4 stars). Try it (esp if you want to experience the cat's pee aroma in a wine hahah!)
