Pouilly-Fuissé 2020, is a 100% Chardonnay blend vinified and aged at Château de La Chaize. This Maconese appellation reveals a magnificent wine with finesse and complexity.
The view is adorned with a green gold color with brilliant and limpid reflections.
The nose is intense with notes of citrus and iodine, with a beautiful underlying floral expression and a touch of toastiness.
The palate reveals a magnificent freshness, full of balance and fullness. Brioche and butter flavors express all the greediness of this crisp wine. We also find all the typicality of Chardonnay through floral notes (acacia) of yellow fruits (apricot) and spice. It finishes with a very nice length in the mouth.
2020 was a very dry and sunny year in the appellation, the grapes were very concentrated with high sugar levels, very low pH and high acidity ensuring a nice balance and an exceptional ageing capacity.
Château de la Chaize is a family property where the descendants of the founder, Jean-François de la Chaize d'Aix, have watched over the Château and its vineyard for 350 years. In 2007, they finally passed it on to another family, that of Christophe Gruy. With his nephew Boris Gruy, Christophe developed an organic conversion, then biodynamic, in order to promote a high-end vinification to get the best of the grape varieties.
Since then, the teams have never stopped renewing themselves and innovating to reach one objective: to make Château de la Chaize one of the jewels of its region. To give itself the means, the estate offers you to discover the Beaujolais according to a parcel-by-parcel approach.
This vineyard of 150 hectares of vines in the process of organic conversion has not finished surprising you with the richness of its terroir and the diversity of its sites.
The advice 12bouteilles: This Pouilly-Fuissé 2020 will be ideal for a tasting accompanied by fish such as sole meunière, scallops snacked with citrus juice or crab meat with exotic fruits. We recommend that you serve this wine at a temperature of 11°C.
