In my opinion when it comes to a dry white wine this one has no equal at all. Dry and crisp but not acidic. It is refreshing and light! If I had to choose 1 white wine to drink the rest of my life it would be this one! The price point for this one is between 15-50 dollars US. But you know what ? It is so worth it. Life is too short to drink crappy wine! In Vino Veritas!
This white Burgundy should not be confused with the Sauvignon Blancs from Pouilly-Fumé and Pouilly-sur-Loire in the Loire Valley.
Pouilly-Fuissé is a dry white wine made from Chardonnay. It is pale and refreshing, often quite delicate. It is not as expensive as the big wines of the Côte de Beaune to the north.
West of Mâcon the land rises up to form Mont de Pouilly and other limestone hills, covered in the alkaline clay that best suits Chardonnay. The villages of Vergisson, Solutré-Pouilly, Fuissé and Chaintré shelter at their feet.
