Winemaker Notes

A dry 100% Chardonnay white wine with a golden color and green glints that brings a mineral bouquet of nice floral touches. Its great presence in mouth is reinforced by fullness, power, and coolness that perfectly harmonize. The flavors are often on the floral tone of hawthorn with a hint of fresh hazelnuts.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Pouilly Fuisse comes from 50-year-old vines and spends between 18 to 20 months in barrel. It has a simple bouquet with fresh citrus fruit, lime flower and mineral scents that unfold beautifully with aeration. There is impressive precision and focus here. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, lightly spiced with engaging fresh Conference pear and kiwi fruit toward the long finish. I appreciate the energy conveyed by this Pouilly-Fuisse despite the warm growing season. Just a delicious Pouilly-Fuisse.

Image of winery

Located on a hillside overlooking the village of Pouilly, Domaine du Chalet Pouilly has been family owned and operated since 1850, passing down expertise and passion from one generation to another. The 8.5 hectares are shared between Pouilly Fuisse (5 hectares), Saint-Veran (3 hectares) and Macon-Solutre planted in 2009 (0.5 hectares). The estate practices sustainable wine-growing methods and some plots are grown according to the organic standards.

Today, Chalet Pouilly is run by Marie-Eve Léger, who joined the domain in 2009 after completing her degree, and her parents Agnes and Bernard. They practice traditional wine-growing methods, respecting the terroir, and their philosophy is to allow nature to express itself through the vinification process in order to create rich-flavored wines with a rustic touch. Their vines are old, and their soil rich and calcareous.

Pouilly-Fuissé

View all products

The source of some of the most sought-after white wines of the Mâconnais, Pouilly-Fuissé is produced exclusively from the Chardonnay grape and tends to be slightly richer in style than wines from its northern neighbor, the Côte de Beaune—mainly due to warmer weather. Wines from Pouilly-Fuissé have some versatility; they can be enjoyed young and can also often improve with a little time in the cellar. Pouilly-Fuissé wines are considered some of the best values for white Burgundy.

Similar to the Côte de Beaune, the soils of Pouilly-Fuissé are mainly limestone and clay. The appellation includes the communes of Fuissé, Solutré (which includes Pouilly), Vergisson and Chaintré. The richest Chardonnay comes from Fuissé and Solutré-Pouilly, whereas the Chardonnay at higher elevation, from Vergisson, expresses more minerality and finesse. Pairing Pouilly-Fuissé with lobster or King Crab will bring great joy not only to your palate—but also your pocketbook!

Chardonnay

View all products

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While practically every country in the wine producing world grows it, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. As far as cellar potential, white Burgundy rivals the world’s other age-worthy whites like Riesling or botrytized Semillon. California is Chardonnay’s second most important home, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia and South America are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

In the Glass

When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay flavors tend towards grapefruit, lemon zest, green apple, celery leaf and wet flint, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of melon, peach and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut and spice, while malolactic fermentation imparts a soft and creamy texture.

Perfect Pairings

Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with flaky white fish with herbs, scallops, turkey breast and soft cheeses. Richer Chardonnays marry well with lobster, crab, salmon, roasted chicken and creamy sauces.

Sommelier Secret

Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. In Burgundy, the subregion of Chablis, while typically employing the use of older oak barrels, produces a similar bright and acid-driven style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy its lighter style.
