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.

Barraud Pouilly Fuisse Les Crays 2010 
Characteristics: This is a living example of how hand-tended, sustainably grown Chardonnay –free of any chemical applications- makes a living wine. Extraordinary Pouilly Fuissé is far more than extraordinary Chardonnay alone; this comes from vines whose taproots anchor to la Roche de Vergisson –the stunning limestone butte that reigns over the rest of Pouilly Fuissé. Mineral, waxy, textural, polished and even creamy, this is balanced by orchards of apples: fresh, poached and glazed.

Bethel Heights Chardonnay 2012 
Characteristics: Bethel Heights 2012 Chardonnay, Willamette Valley | 13.5% | A lovely and fragrant estate Chardonnay from Eola-Amity with an elegance unique to those of the Willamette Valley still bearing a chirping texture of waxy apples, snappy crunching acidity. Its ripe but firm fruit has outstanding flavor and mouthfeel –perhaps from blending old Wente clones with Dijon clones who seem to play really well with others. A total marvel!

Bouchard Beaune Clos St. Landry Blanc 2010 
Characteristics: 2010 may best prove why this Monopole Clos Saint Landry is Premier Cru white Burgundy of Beaune for it shows of what this warmer site is capable. From the first inhale this has you engrossed by all its fragrant glory -at once precise and crystalline and yet round and full scented. A clean precision marks the 2010 vintage with a gothic structure that uses the weight of Chardonnay and the edge of Beaune minerality to soar like flying buttresses in lofty expressions of orange blossoms, apple orchards, and freshly cut melons. Then one takes note of the texture of this wine; waxy lemon rinds and that nuance of pine sap unique to Burgundy serve as the lime that binds together all the wines other weightier and edgier elements –together as a lovely, soaring, and elegant whole.
