Winemaker's Notes

Pouilly-Fuisse, the finest wine of the Maconnais and one of the best known names from Burgundy, comes from 2,100 acres of vines to the west of the town of Macon, covering the five communes of Fuisse, Pouilly, Solutre, Chaintre and Vergisson. Wines from the neighbouring communes of Loche and Vinzelles may not benefit from the Pouilly-Fuisse appellation. The high limestone content in the granite-based soil suits Chardonnay to perfection and the warmer climate of the Maconnais, compared to the Cote d'Or and especially to Chablis, allows the grapes to ripen fully, giving high degrees of natural alcohol to the wine.   Like all of the white Villages Appellations in the Macon area, Pouilly Fuissé is made from Chardonnay grapes.  It is the pearl of Macon appellations. This lovely wine is characterised by a very pale golden colour and the aromas of hazelnut, marzipan and buttery bread yet with a slightly nervy aftertaste.  Manual picking allows for rigorous grape selection during the harvest. After a slight settling of the juice, the must is fermented in temperature-controlled tanks, and sometimes in oaken barrels. Serve at a temperature of 14° - 15° Celsius. Serve with smoked salmon, fish in sauce or white meat.
