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
The 2017 vintage for Burgundy was strong, however, there were some challenges. Vines flowered late and were affected by frost resulting in yields below the regional average. Despite that, the grapes were in a perfect state of health fostered by increased levels of rain in August and by the harvest in early September. They were picked when at excellent ripeness levels.

Aromas and flavors of toasted nuts and citrus grace this harmonious, medium-bodied wine.
Food Pairing
Pairs with shellfish, fish and poultry.

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.
