This appellation from southern Burgundy is located in the Mâconnais region around the villages of Fuissé, Solutré, Pouilly, Vergisson and Chaintré. The vines are planted on hillsides - sometimes very steep. The varying exposures result in a harvest period that lasts more than two weeks.
This wine features a lively, aromatic nose with predominant notes of white fruit and spices, underpinned by a subtle touch of oak and vanilla. Mineral on the palate with a good balance between acidity and roundness. Lovely length.
This wine is a good match for all kinds of fish, seafood, and white meats in sauce. It also pairs well with full-flavoured cheesess.
