Pouilly-Fuissé 2016 - Domaine Carrette


Pouilly-Fuissé is the star appellation of the Mâcon area and this bottle is the first of three we have selected this week. With about 6 months spent in oak barrels, it has the roundness and toasted notes typical of white Burgundy. Aromas of flowers, white fruits and nuts are nicely mixed with a mineral touch at the end. If you like oaked Chardonnay, this is a real catch!
