CHATEAU DE FUISSE POUILLY FUISSE LES COMBETTES 2019
Country: France, Bourgogne, Maconnais
Grape Varieties: Chardonnay 100%

Terroir: One of the three monopole bottlings of Château Fuissé, the vineyard of Les Combettes covers just 4.4 acres within the village of Fuissé. Vines are densely planted in well-drained soil made up primarily of limestone, pebbles and small amounts of clay.

Vinification: The grapes are brought to the state-of-the-art winery where they are sorted and placed in barrels for fermentation. The must rests in the cellars of Château Fuissé for 12 months in used oak barrels (3 to 5 years old). To retain its vibrant acidity no new oak is used in this cuvée.

Tasting Notes: Aromas of buttered peaches, pear and melon introduce the 2019 Pouilly-Fuisse Les Combettes, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and giving wine that`s open-knit and enveloping, concluding with a somewhat heady finish.

Food Pairing: Fine fish or poultry

The Grape
Chardonnay
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.
