Drouhin Pouilly-Fuissé 2008, Chardonnay Wine

Drouhin Pouilly-Fuissé 2008, Chardonnay Wine

Origin: France - Burgundy

Artisan Vineyard Notes

Characteristics: What should Pouilly Fuisse taste like? Ah, Pouilly Fuisse should greet you with a warm embrace and leave you yearning for your next encounter. Creamy aromas of sweet and tangy buttermilk lure the nose into apples cut an hour ago and therefore extremely fragrant yet still fresh. Waxy lemon peels twist on a well balanced palate combining the verve unique to Burgundy with a calm, round texture that bears all the aromas along the palate, staying with you through the finish. 13% alcohol by volume
Wine review by Nicholas D. Livingston, February 2011

"A seductive wine and a really nice expression of the Chardonnay grape! The colour is golden, with some green reflections. Among the floral and fruity aromas, almond and ripe grapes dominate. On the palate, the wine is refreshingly pleasant, ethereal in its lightness. Long and refreshing aftertaste".
- wine tasting note by Veronique Drouhin
Food Pairings: 52°-55°F is the correct temperature to serve a Pouilly-Fuisse. It marries well with hors d'oeuvres, delicately flavored charcuterie, oysters, mussels and any other shellfish.

Alexander Valley Vineyards Chardonnay 2012 
Characteristics: "Our estate is bordered by the Russian River and since 1975 we have showcased this location with our Estate Chardonnay. The vines are planted on some of the coolest sites on our estate where daily fog is the norm. During the growing season the temperature drops between 40 to 50 degrees from day to nighttime.
2012 was a textbook growing season in Northern California with more heat accumulation days than in previous years. Moderate temperatures at bloom resulted in greater fruit set than 2011.

Consistent mild to warm days without serious heat spikes during early ripening produced heavier clusters and cluster thinning happened more than once in many blocks. The favorable weather allowed the Chardonnay grapes to reach optimal flavor development.

We harvest 70% of our Chardonnay at night when the grapes are coolest to retain the natural acidity, then cold ferment those lots in stainless steel, without malolactic fermentation or barrel aging to highlight the citrus and green apple flavors. To add balance to the wine, we whole cluster press 30% of the best fruit and barrel ferment that portion in French Oak barrels. The barrel fermented lots undergo malolactic fermentation and age on the lees for 6-8 months to develop roundness and body."

Barraud Pouilly Fuisse La Roche 2007 
Characteristics: Here the thin soils show themselves which in the 2007s is a terrific complexity. The nose is stoney, chalky. Quince, preserved lemons in the flavours with a shimmery steeliness in the finish.
