Laurent Perrachon, Pouilly-Fuissé 'Vieilles Vignes' 2019Regular price €31.00
Citrus character is underpinned by richer tropical hints and smooth, buttery softness in a dry, lithe Chardonnay from the Mâconnais.
This cuvée is not quite a new venture for the Perrachons—their forebears worked in the Pouilly vines in the nineteenth century. Now, through a family connexion, they have been able to lease a small plot in the Pouilly appellation en fermage and make a new vintage from three terroirs of a 1.7 hectare vineyard in Fuissé.
The wine is partly aged in five-hundred litre barrels and partly in stainless steel vats, to balance freshness of fruit with the smooth complexity typical of the appellation.
