Winemaker Notes

A stunning white gold color, this Pouilly Fuissé exhibits a complex nose of white and yellow stone fruits which are complemented by light toasted notes of almonds and gingerbread. The palate is well-balanced, round and mineral-driven with fresh & light toasted flavors that linger on the lengthy finish.

Wine Enthusiast

The subtle nose on this wine suggests creamy apricot. Gentleness and creaminess carry over to a smooth but warm and textured palate. Freshness and a touch of pleasantly bitter pith counter the fruit and creates a bright and long finish. Cape Classics

Wine & Spirits

At first, this seems like a gentle creampuff of a chardonnay, playing richness at high volume without a lot of flavor detail. Given time, a spicy apple-skin flavor tightens around the cushioned texture and heady scents of toasted lees, as the wine’s energy begins to show. This will benefit from two years or more in the cellar. Best Buy

Domaine Auvigue  Winery Image
The Auvigue family has been working its vineyard for generations, closely following traditional Burgundy methods. The grapes come from family estates or are carefully selected from the best areas of the Pouilly Fuisse, Saint Veran and Macon appellations. To allow each parcel to remain true to itself, Jean-Pierre and Michel Auvigue always adapt the vinification process to the climate. So the climates of “La Frerie”, “Les Chailloux” or “Les Crays” in the Pouilly Fuisse region are allowed to give their very best.

Brothers Jean-Pierre and Michel Auvigue run Vins Auvigue from the village of Charnay-les-Macon. They are the fifth generation of winemakers who started out in Beaujolais, their grandfather one of the first to commence domaine-bottling in the region during the 1940s. They only use organic products in the vineyards that are predominantly based around Solutre. Leaf thinning is usually eschewed and there is prudent use of oak in the winery.

Pouilly-Fuissé Wine

Maconnais, Burgundy

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!

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 it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
