The Dutoit family is the source of some of the most sought-after white wines in Burgundy. Produced exclusively from old vine Chardonnay grapes, they tend to be slightly richer in style than wines from further north due to its warmer weather. These wines show great versatility; they can be enjoyed young and can also improve with a little time in the cellar. The wines from Pouilly-Fuissé are considered some of the best values for white Burgundy.
The region encompasses the area on the west coast of France, north of the famous Bordeaux wine region. The climate here is maritime, influenced by the presence of the Atlantic, which moderates temperatures throughout the year, leading to milder winters and cooler summers. High sunshine hours and moderate rainfall make for a good environment for viticulture. The vineyards are planted on calcareous clay soils with a high proportion of limestone. These limestone soils retain water effectively, hydrating the vines throughout the growing season.
