Famille Sambardier Pouilly Fuisse La Levee 2016

Famille Sambardier Pouilly Fuisse La Levee is made from 100% Chardonnay

The wine is very aromatic, with brioche, butter and citrus flavors. The length to the finish is long and balanced with great acidity and richness.

Hand harvested. Grapes were sourced from a vineyard in the village of Solutré. 10% of the wine was aged in French Oak barrels.

Excellent with poultry and fresh water fish. Delicious also with goat cheeses.


Trouillet Lebeau Pouilly-Fuisse Aux Chailloux 2018

Trouillet Lebeau Pouilly-Fuisse Aux Chailloux is made from 100% Chardonnay.

This Pouilly-Fuisse is produced from 60 year old Chardonnay grapes (among the oldest of the domaine) that are grown in the foothills of the Solutre Rock on the parcel called "Chailloux" - the name means in old French clay and rounded “chailles” or stones. They play a significant role in the composition of the soil as they bring minerality to the wine.

The wine offers beautiful aromas of red juice orange and spices. Ample in the mouth, rich and full, with a fresh finish on citrus fruits.

Excellent with poultry and fresh water fish. Delicious also with goat cheeses.




Chartron & Trebuchet Pouilly-Fuisse 2019

This Pouilly Fuissé is delicious as an aperitif or with mild tasting cheese (camembert, brie, blue, goat, gruyere...).

Review:

"The outstanding 2017 Menetou Salon Blanc (100% Sauvignon Blanc) is a winner. Lovely honeyed citrus, pear, and a kiss of rocky mineral-like notes all flow to a medium-bodied, beautifully balanced, juicy white that has all kinds of charm and character. It’s going to be incredibly versatile on the dinner table and is well worth seeking out."

Domaine Charles Pere & Fille Volnay 1er Cru Fremiets 2015

Domaine Charles Pere & Fille Volnay Premier Cru Fremiets is made from 100 percent Pinot Noir.

Terroir Soil : Very thin soil with rocks near earth's surface Exposition : South East Average age : 30 years Surface area : 0.6 hectare Yield : 38 hl/ha

Winemaking:Fully destemmed, then vatted for about 15 days and aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. Grapes are picked by hand and transported in small crates in order to prevent berries from being crushed. With the same concern for quality, bunches and grapes are sorted again as soon as they reach the cellar.

Tasting notes: Nice shades of violet and garnet red. On the nose, violet and cherry notes. A wine with a good attack, silky tannins, elegance and, above all, nice length.

Food pairing suggestions: It perfectly complements venison marinade, Bresse chicken. 

Review:

From the Pommard side of Volnay, this wine straddles the smoothness of a Volany with the structure of a Pommard. It offers both immediate richness and ripe black fruits along with a core of dark tannins that will allow this wine to age. Drink from 2022.- Wine Enthusiast 91 Points

Product Description

Domaine Saumaize Michelin Pouilly Fuisse Vignes Blanche has flavors of white peach, pear aromas; brioche nuances. Mineral, rich and full flavored and complex wine.



"The 2010 Saumaize-Michelin displays notes of buttered brioche, orange rind and lemon butter in a fresh, medium-bodied, lovely style, with just a hint of oak aging in the background. I tasted several other cuvees from this estate, and readers who want to spend a little more money should check them out too. The 2010 Pouilly-Fuisse -Pentacrine- (89 points; $43.00) is excellent. The real stunner is the 2010 Pouilly-Fuisse -Vignes Blanches,- which costs about $39.00 a bottle and which I rated 92 points. It is a sensational wine and a great Macon."
