An elegant Chardonnay from the most important village in southern Burgundy, Pouilly Fuisse. Here a warmer Maconnaise climate on classic limestone soils, just like the Cotes de Beaune, produces Chardonnay with gently aromatic citrus and stone fruit against refreshing minerality, without too much oak. From a real hotspot for value in Burgundy, for $30 something this is a delight.

Its Origins

Today the Burgundian wine domaine of Bouchard Pere et Fils can trace its origins back to 1731, though it is no longer family owned. In 1995 the Champagne house Joseph Henriot acquired the company and quality has risen as a consequence. Bouchard is led by Stéphane Follin Arbelet, while the wines are made by Philippe Prost - who has been with the company since 1978. An impressive gravity-flow winery on the Route de Savigny, the Cuvérie St Vincent, was completed in 2005 and enables them to process all their wines with optimum efficiency. Bouchard’s total holdings comprise 130 hectares, including 12ha of grand crus and 74ha of premier crus, which makes them the largest vineyard owners in the Côte d’Or.

What The Critics Say

89/100 Burghound, Allen Meadows

"There is a background touch of reduction though not so much as to mask the aromas of pear, apple and white flowers. There is both fine volume and punch to the delicious and lightly mineral-inflected flavors that terminate in a lingering, clean and agreeably dry finish. This too could be enjoyed young."

91/100 Wine and Spirits Magazine (2014 vintage)

"An elegant Pouilly-Fuisse, this lasts on a light frame with pretty scents of spring blossoms in an apple and pear orchard. Fresh scents of cream add to the wine's brightness. For a salad of roast chicken and apples."
