  • Pouilly-Fuissé is the name of a village in the Mâconnais producing highly distinctive white wines. The unique 'terroir' of this vineyard is composed of limestone and heavy clay soils. Since 2020, the French government has validated the decision of the INAO to recognize the classification of 22 climates of Pouilly-Fuissé as 1er Cru. Our Pouilly-Fuissé 1er Cru is a blend of several selected plots.

  • Tasting Note
    Our Pouilly-Fuissé 1er Cru 2022 has a brilliant pale gold color. Its intense and complex nose reveals notes of acacia, lime blossom, vanilla as well as apricot. On the palate, it is full-bodied and smooth, with hints of apricot, vanilla, fresh hazelnut and honey. Nice length on the palate.

      An assembly of  'a few 1ers...'
      Higher-toned yellow citrus notes, growing quite floral. Broad, incisive - great stature in the mouth - super texture - intense and young finishing - keep this a while too - also 1-2 years - but here are clean, sweeping delicious flavours.
