Winemaker's Notes:

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.

About Maison Joseph Drouhin:

Since 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin has built a reputation for wines that primarily reflect their individual terroir and vintage. Faithfully preserving the individuality of each appellation, the Drouhin firm constantly strives for wines of breed, finesse and elegance.

A balance of tradition and modern techniques characterizes Joseph Drouhin winemaking and vineyard management: on site nursery, plowing, leaf removal, 100% hand harvesting, open fermenters, fermenting and aging in oak.

As a result of its historic location deep in the heart of Beaune, the quality of its vineyards and the expertise resulting from years of experience in the cultivation of vines and traditional vinification, Maison Joseph Drouhin is uniquely placed to uphold authentic Burgundian style.

Starting with Joseph Drouhin, who founded Maison Joseph Drouhin over a century ago, a great estate has evolved with important holdings in Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Chablis and, most recently, Oregon.

MAISON JOSEPH DROUHIN AWARDED ORGANIC CERTIFICATION Estate-grown Grapes of 2009 Vintage and later Now Officially Organic. Twenty years after Philippe Drouhin first began introducing organic practices to the vineyards making up the family company’s domaine (estate), Maison Joseph Drouhin (MJD), has been awarded organic certification for all grapes grown within its vineyards beginning with the 2009 vintage.
