Louis Jadot Pouilly-Fuissé

Country: France
Region: Pouilly-Fuissé
Producer: Louis Jadot
Grape variety: Chardonnay
Vintage: 2009
Found at: Willow Park Wines and Spirits ($37)

About the region
: Pouilly-Fuissé produces some of the richest white wines in Burgundy, due to the vineyards being situated on a series of amphitheatre-like slopes, which act as natural sun traps.

About the wine: This wine reflects the region very well. It offers pear and peach aromas, combined with a nutty and almost herbal character. It’s richer than your average white Burgundy, though it still sports a vibrant acidity to balance it out. For fans of oaky, buttery New World (United States, Australia, South America, etc.) Chardonnay who want to try a more restraint style, this would be a great place to start. On the other side, for Burgundy fans looking for a richer style of white that won’t break the bank, this would be a good bottle to try out as well.
