Tasting note
Our Pouilly-Fuisse "Sous la Roche" 2016 reveals aromas of fruits and acacia on the nose. In the mouth, aromas of fresh fruits, especially citrus, come along with notes of honey on the finish. A rich and very well balanced wine.

Description
On the hillsides, the Pouilly-Fuisse, Sous le Roche vineyard is located in the heart of a wonderful Maconnais landscape. A series of gentle hills covers the vineyard but as we move south, it becomes more marked finishing in rock-crowned masses. The top quality Chardonnay grapes of Pouilly Fuisse are precisely harvested on these lofty slopes. The village of Pouilly-Fuisse takes its name from the Roche de Solutre, a 493 meters rock known for its "chalk grassland," a soil made up of calcareous bedrock. The vineyard is located downhill from the rock. This situation highlights the richness of this appellation through its minerality and its freshness.

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

Lively and Fun!

"This stunning Chardonnay is light in color with notes of citrus and tree fruit on the nose, such as green apple, peaches, and pear. There's also a light bouquet of floral notes that comes through that makes it rather enticing. On the palate, hints of pear can be picked up as well as subtle hints of honey that rounds out the wine. With delicate minerality and refreshing lemon zest this wine easily becomes refreshing and with its lasting finish you'll definitely want to put your feet up and pour another glass!"
