“Legendary White Burgundy | 94 pts Editor's Choice!”
Editor's Choice | One of Burgundy's Most Legendary Estates!
When we have the opportunity to procure legendary wines, we don't pass them up - and neither should you. From a classic vintage, "there is no domaine in all of southern Burgundy that has more of a legendary reputation than this extraordinary estate." Robert Parker In any vintage, this Pouilly-Fuisse producer is the benchmark. We've featured Chateau Fuisse before, but this vintage is particularly noteworthy. It is the oldest domaine in the region and their Tete de Cru bottling is a blend of the domaine's single vineyards revealing the best Chardonnay qualities of each. Aromas of citrus, honey, sweet spice, peach, pear and mild oak fill the glass. A clean structure reveals lovely fruit, nice acidity, good balance and a perfect finish. Discreet wood supports the solidly rich and generous middle weight flavors that possess an attractive touch of minerality on the persistent finish.
This Chardonnay of uncompromising quality can be enjoyed now and over the next seven years. Simply stunning, enjoy with slow poached Halibut and baby red potatoes roasted to perfection.
