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, PouillyVinzelles and Saint-Véran. The judicious, subtle use of oak allows Louis Jadot’s Pouilly-Fuissé to retain its complexity and structure.

Harvest Note
The 2019 vintage was very healthy and quality should be high, a tricky flowering period and hot summer weather have conspired to lower the crop substantially compared to last year. Volumes may be down as much as 30 - 40% in some areas and affects both white and red crops. The year began with a fairly mild winter, and May was very wet. There was some frost in early April but damage was not too extensive overall. June also got off to a cool start which led to an uneven flowering with shatter being a factor in places. The rest of the year was “ideal” but there was next to no rain during the summer months which, on the one hand, has led to superbly concentrated grapes but, on the other, a drastic reduction in volumes.
Tasting Note
Aromas and flavors of toasted nuts and citrus grace this harmonious, medium-bodied wine.

About the Grape

Chardonnay
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.
