Pouilly-Fuissé 2014

Region: France / Burgundy / Poully-Fuissé
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

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.

harvest note

Cold weather seemed to arrive with the first fogs, but winter proved both mild and rainy. The month of March saw neither showers nor rainstorms - it was almost as if summer had already arrived. So the vines grew, and grew faster. By mid-April the growth of the vines was already three weeks ahead of where it had been the previous year. The summery weather continued, with flowering beginning on May 22. The start of summer proper was humid, and cool temperatures slowed the vegetative growth. As summer made its appearance around the 17th of July, its generosity was overabundant. As a result, some bunches were somewhat sunburned, and this led to yields that varied from one parcel to another. While this happenstance may have affected the quantity of the harvest, the quality of the bunches at the end of July was unquestionable. Growth had slowed, and was, by this stage, only slightly ahead of the average. The quality of the 2014 vintage in excellent, with our Pouilly-Fuissé revealing itself to be full-bodied, fleshy, juicy, and intense.
