The area of production of this famous appellation is South of Mâcon. This is where the contours of the hills become more marked, the cliffs of Vergisson and Solutré forming an impressive back-drop. The vineyards completely blanket the slopes and are located on "cirques", facing East and South-East, at 250 to 350 meters above sea-level (750 to 1 050 feet). The soil is a mixture a clay and chalk from the Jurassic era. The geographical area comprises the villages of Fuissé, Solutré, Vergisson and Chaintré. The only grape variety used there is the Chardonnay. Every year, Robert DROUHIN makes a careful selection of several cuvées of Pouilly-Fuissé. Brought to the winery in Beaune, the wine matures in the cellars before being bottled in the Spring.

Tasting notes
Pouilly-Fuissé has an emerald-golden hue. It is usually very brilliant. The bouquet is seductive : floral and fruity with a dominance of ripe fruit and fresh almonds. After some time in the bottle, Pouilly-Fuissé develops a lovely, complex bouquet. On the palate, the wine is round and dry. As such, it is a nice expression of the Chardonnay.

Food pairing
The wine should be served at 12 to 14oC. It goes well with shellfish, fish, quenelles, white meats in creamy sauce, poultry and sweetbreads.
