Pouilly-Fuissé 2006 - Wine

Pouilly-Fuissé
Pouilly-Fuissé

Location

A blend of the best parcels from Fuissé's amphitheatre.

Vineyards' age

From 10 to 35 years old.

Soil

Limestone and clay.

Vinification and maturing

Half the wine is aged in lined concrete tanks and half in oak. No new oak used - instead 2nd to 5th use barrels.

Tasting

The wine shows great balance between weight and freshness, with elegance derived from seamless minerality. Layers of subtle fruit notes combine stone fruits, acacia flowers and spiced hazelnut butter. The finish is long, intense and spicy. A wine whose balance permits it to age gracefully.

Wine and food pairing

Shellfish and molluscs, seafood risotto, grilled or pan-fried fish, veal cutlets with creamy sauces, goat's cheeses and hard cow's milk cheeses.

The vintage

Full bodied and sensuous, the wines are fleshy and rich, with great ripeness of fruit.
