One of the most famous white wines in the world and one for which Louis Jadot is justifiably famous; a lovely rich wine that shows the true delights of Chardonnay, soft and elegant with a rich mouth feel, delicate use of oak and good acid balance.
Located in the southern part of Burgundy, at the northern limit of Beaujolais, Pouilly Fuissé is a region that has no Premier Crus. The villages producing Pouilly Fuissé are Pouilly, Fuissé, Solutré, Vergisson and Chaintre. There are nuances in taste between the villages, with Pouilly regarded as the best.
A vintage of excellent quality, which started early thanks to a warm spring and early summer, with some very hot whether in July and August. Pinot Noir in particular had small berries, but beautifully concentrated and Chardonnay managed to hold its acidity.
Part of the wine is fermented in vats and the rest in oak barrels in order to have a fresh and fruity wine with a good structure.
