Pouilly Fuissé AOC

White wine from Burgundy not to be confused with Pouilly Fumé de Loire.
Situated in Burgundy on the outskirts of Mâcon, the appellation produces an excellent dry white wine made from Chardonnay. The vineyard extends over the communes of Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly, Vergisson and Chaintré.
This vineyard is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful success stories of Burgundy Chardonnay. With their charm and complexity, Pouilly Fuissé wines have the reputation of the great wines of France. The best terroir of the appellation is located on the Roche de Solutré.
When young, these white wines can be appreciated after being decanted to help them release all the richness of their aromas.
They stand up well to ageing: don't be afraid to leave them in the cellar for twenty years. The key is to be patient, because with time, Pouilly Fuissé wines of a venerable age know how to develop gracefully.
To better discover it, savour the vintages of the Ferret, Bret & Brother, Robert Denogent or Château Fuissé estates.

SHALL WE TASTE?
In the Glass

vin blanc sec Pouilly Fumé

DRY WHITES

Gastronomic.

Colour : One is first seduced by a deep gold robe varying in shades of emerald green. Always limpid and brilliant.

Nose : Exquisite and varied bouquet, melted and nuanced. Full of personality, it evokes different families of aromas: citrus, fruity (peach, pineapple), mineral, dried fruit (hazelnuts, almonds), honey, buttered bread or brioche.
Mouth :

A little lively, this wine is vigorous but does not lack finesse. It is ample and structured, which favours a good alcohol content and the power of its aromas. Slight bitterness on the finish, but far from being a defect.

Service temperature: 12°C to 14°C

Ageing potential: 5 to 10 years.

MORE INFORMATION
Pouilly Fuissé Facts

Fine wine of Burgundy, king of Mâconnais

Fine wines, yet Mâconnais remains affordable. Nicknamed "Rois du Mâconnais", Pouilly Fuissé is the only non-Côtes d'Or wine not produced in the Côtes d'Or region that is auctioned each year at the Hospices de Beaune. This event contributes to the international reputation of the appellation. Great wines, they are a perfect match for great cuisine, especially local gastronomy (Grenouille des Dombes, fish from the Saône, or poultry from Bresse). A prestigious duo when you consider that French cuisine is now classified as a UNESCO Intangible World Heritage Site.

When to drink a Pouilly Fuissé?

This wine has a well asserted typicity. To appreciate the richness of its aromas, it is best to wait a decade or even two. However, if you decide to drink it young, don't hesitate to decant it as you would a red wine of venerable age. Finally, don't serve it too chilled: the cold prevents the wine from releasing its volatile aromas and would require you to work it under the palate.

Do not confuse Pouilly Fuissé and Pouilly Fumé.
