Pouilly Fuissé, Mâconnais

Daniel Barraud

La Verchère Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2005

Nothing better than a well aged Chardonnay and fatty, cold water fish. This bottle is our go to pairing for grilled steelhead trout.

Nose is evolving since my prior post, oxidized green apple peel and cold caramel.

Palate is lightly sweet lemon curd/custard, baked red apple, cooked lemon, warm granite dust and a zing of acidity on the close.

Our feline house managers pestered for comfortable portions on the trout, they are good boys and girls, generally, so we endulge.

Great night listening to Hugh Masekela and Mongo Santamaria on the HiFi, everything complimented!

One bottle left, then we move along to the next vintage.

An inconvenient truth (and beneficial in the long run!)

Domaine Michel Cheveau

"Vers Cras" Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2017

Not a big Chardonnay guy, mostly because of the California style, but this wine is complex and unctuous. Great balanced acidity with a strong mineral, like wet slate. This is the first Chardonnay I have truly loved in a long time. — 14 days ago

Domaine Leflaive

Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2015

A lovely example the vintage. Impeccably balanced with just enough richness to off set the acidity. — 17 days ago

Domaine Le Clos Noly

Courtelong Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2016

Notes of lemon cello and honeysuckle, perhaps green apple jelly rancher. The mouth is light and refreshing, with a pleasant tart finish. I almost taste some slight toasted oak on the finish, but it’s 100% stainless steel. Great with food or by itself. For the price, it’s a solid Macon-Charnay. — 4 days ago

@Vanessa D interesting dish, is that salmon?

@Dennis P. Yes, it’s oven-baked salmon with a miso glaze sauce and broccoli roasted with sesame oil, over a bed of jasmine rice, and topped with marinated cucumber. I’m in the midst of a free two-meal trial of Blue Apron and this is our first meal. It was interesting and generated some new cooking ideas I’d never considered before!

Château Fuisse

Tête de Cru Pouilly-Fuisse Chardonnay

Medium lemon color with developing aromas of apple, toast, butter, vanilla, lemon, blossom and nectarine. Dry, medium alcohol, medium (+) acidity, medium body. Pronounced flavors of toast, apple, pear, peach, and vanilla. Long finish. Very good quality. Drink now, but has potential for further aging. — 20 days ago
