Pouilly-Fuissé 2016

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

Burgundy’s 2016 began with fickle weather in spring, including frost and hailstorms that demanded a reinforced presence at the vines. Thankfully the chaotic start had no impact on quality of the vintage. Splendid summer conditions followed, bringing ideal conditions for ripening. In the weeks leading up to harvest, the vines benefited from hot, sunny days and cooler nights that allowed for optimum maturity and superb grape quality.
