Louis Jadot Pouilly Fuisse

Pouilly-Fuissé

In southern Burgundy, at the northern border of Beaujolais, lies the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation. At the top of the hierarchy of Mâconnais wines, this area is in the heart of the great appellations that produce white wines: Fuissé, Pouilly-Loché, Pouilly-Vinzelles and Saint-Véran. The judicious, subtle use of oak allows Louis Jadot's Pouilly-Fuissé to retain its complexity and structure.

ABOUT THE GRAPE

Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
