Country: France, Burgundy, Maconnais
Grape Varieties: Chardonnay 100%
This little gem is born in the village of Fuisse of Pouilly Fuisse fame where limestone clay soils are the perfect place to grow Chardonnay.

Vinification & Ageing: After hand harvesting, the grapes are gently pressed and then the resulting juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks that are temperature controlled. The yeasts are natural and in the following maturation the fine lees are subjected to batonnage to keep them in suspension thus adding some richness to the final wine. Some malolactic fermentation is permitted depending on the vintage.

Tasting Notes: The wine has a golden colour with greenish highlights, an elegant and very fine nose with great freshness and some mineral notes below. In the mouth, the freshness is evident once again with a great clip of acidity in the finish. A superb win that was built for food especially shellfish or poultry. 

Food Pairing: Shellfish and poultry

Best served around 11 degrees C.  This should age for a further 3 years.

Case Bottles: 6

The Grape
Chardonnay is the "Big Daddy" of white wine grapes and one of the most widely planted in the world. It is suited to a wide variety of soils, though it excels in soils with a high limestone content as found in Champagne, Chablis, and the Côte D`Or.

Burgundy is Chardonnay`s spiritual home and the best White Burgundies are dry, rich, honeyed wines with marvelous poise, elegance and balance. They are unquestionably the finest dry white wines in the world. Chardonnay plays a crucial role in the Champagne blend, providing structure and finesse, and is the sole grape in Blanc de Blancs.

It is quantitatively important in California and Australia, is widely planted in Chile and South Africa, and is the second most widely planted grape in New Zealand. In warm climates Chardonnay has a tendency to develop very high sugar levels during the final stages of ripening and this can occur at the expense of acidity. Late picking is a common problem and can result in blowsy and flabby wines that lack structure and definition.

Recently in the New World, we have seen a move towards more elegant, better- balanced and less oak-driven Chardonnays, and this is to be welcomed.
