Pouilly-Fuissé Les Préludes
Grape variety and "Terroir"
Located exclusively on the slopes, the vineyard delivers a unique vintage: Chardonnay, the noble variety of all the great white Burgundies. Extending as a belt across the southern edge of the Mâconnais, the soils offer a wide variety of substrates, mainly limestone, and many different exposures due to the extremely fragmented nature of the plots.
Food and wine pairing
Well-appreciated as an aperitif so that the taste can be enjoyed to the full, the sophisticated elegance of Pouilly-Fuissé makes it above all a wine to serve with meals, as a wonderful accompaniment to shellfish and fish. Its full-bodied roundness in the mouth also goes well with the local dish of quenelles, white meat or chicken served in a cream sauce. The local goat’s cheeses from the Mâconnais district also go well with a young Pouilly-Fuissé.
« A well-balanced wine, combining finesse, intensity, complexity of aromas and great potential for maturing. It takes between three and ten years for the richness of this dry wine to develop, with delicate aromas of white flowers and citrus, evolving towards notes of hazelnut, almond, vanilla or flint as the wine matures. »
