The Pouilly Fuissé Vieilles Vignes is a deep gold wine that has an intense brioche aroma with hints of stone fruits and flowers and some minerality. It has a complex palate of green apples, with hints of citrus, creamy oak notes, and an impressive finish.
Pouilly-Fuissé is the most prestigious appellation in the Mâconnais. The grapes that eventually become ‘Vielles Vignes’ come from three different parcels ideally situated in suntraps on the slopes of escarpment of Vergisson in the hamlets of Pouilly, Solutré and Fuissé and mature on 60 to 90 year old vines. These parcels all have south-easterly aspects that expose them to sunlight and warmth, which stimulates photosynthesis and allows Chardonnay to develop physiological ripeness quickly, under stress, in Burgundy’s precarious continental climate.
