Pouilly-Fuissé has an emerald-golden hue. It is usually very brilliant. The bouquet is seductive : floral and fruity with a dominance of ripe fruit and fresh almonds. After some time in the bottle, Pouilly-Fuissé develops a lovely, complex bouquet. On the palate, the wine is round and dry. As such, it is a nice expression of the Chardonnay.
Although Pouilly-Fuissé can be enjoyed young after one or two years of age, it can be left a few years in the cellar, provided that it comes from a good vintage.
The wine should be served at 12 to 14oC. It goes well with shellfish, fish, quenelles, white meats in creamy sauce, poultry and sweetbreads.
