Best Producers

France: Burgundy: Pouilly-Fuisse

What is Pouilly-Fuissé?
Pouilly-Fuissé is a white wine made from Chardonnay in a group of towns just to the north of the Beaujolais region in the far south of Burgundy. The wines as a whole can be undistinguished, but the best producers make wines that are rich, ripe, and often tinged with oak. The best can age for several years, though most are ready on release. As far as value is concerned, the wines might be considered moderately expensive, though not excessively so. The very best producers will be worth the premium paid. Additionally, Pouilly-Fuissé can be somewhat more consistent than the more glamorous appellations of the Cote d’Or, an hour to the north. The peaks, however, will not be as high.
