In southern Burgundy, at the northern border of Beaujolais, lies the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation. At the top of the hierarchy of Mâconnais wines, this area is in the heart of the great appellations that produce white wines: Fuissé, Pouilly-Loché, Pouilly
Vinzelles and Saint-Véran. The judicious, subtle use of oak allows Louis Jadot’s Pouilly-Fuissé to retain its complexity and structure.
HARVEST NOTES:
The summer was cooler than the average, forcing a late harvest. A severe frost across most of France created many challenges for winemakers, especially making this the smallest harvest in several decades. Although the yields were small, the
winemakers were still happy with the quality of the fruit that did survive the harvest.

Aromas and flavors of toasted nuts and citrus grace this harmonious, medium-bodied wine
