This is a stunning Chardonnay made from grapes that have been nurtured and cultivated from the best grand cru and premier cru vineyards in Pouilly-Fuisse hence the "tete de cuvee." There is a pleasant prolonged aroma of zesty citrus, yellow tea, Bartlett and Tosca pear mingled with zingy minerality and toasted hazelnuts. I love the matureness in the start and the youthfulness in the finish, the balance is un-matching to others in this price category so stock up, this will not disappoint.

A pretty nose of white peaches, golden apple and honeydew melon. On the palate, more classically Burgundian. Starts out quite full on the palate with golden fruits and (very) subtle oak. At the top of the palate, there is a fine, refreshing acidity with bright nectarine, citrus and a slight hint of spice. Extremely pleasant and refreshing! If you are looking to (A) try affordable white Burgundy and (B) expand your horizons from big and buttery, this is a definite one to try. Should pretty much please any palate.

Looking for an incredible White Burgundy experience for under $40? Of course you are, who isn't? Grab a bottle of the 2018 Chateau Fuisse Pouilly Fuisse "Tete de Cuvee", this is an absolutely stunning bottle of wine. Aromas of fresh picked orchard apples and wet stone slowly rise from the glass while the palate is a supple mix of apples, stone fruit, spice and subtle oak nuances. The wine has terrific drive and balance with an intensity of flavors and focus you often find in a 1er cru white. A wonderful example of the heights the Macon and more specifically Pouilly-Fuisse can achieve in the right hands.
Top Value! Drink from 2020 to 2025
