Our oenologists' opinion

Well-rounded

With its fragrances of fern, honeysuckle, acacia and hawthorn, this straw-colored wine offers you a real walk in the forest. And this fresh and vegetal tendency carries on in mouth where the acidulous and supple attack makes way for a nice mineral note, complex and demonstrating a beautiful finesse. Taste, balance and freshness are to find during the full-bodied finish.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Domain and appellation

  • Louis Jadot

    Founded in Beaune in 1859, the Maison Louis Jadot owns nowadays a domain of vines of about 240 hectares and produces a wide range of regional designation as well as Grands Crus such as Clos Vougeot, Corton Charlemagne, or Chevalier-Montrachet.

     

    • Terroir: The vineyard of Pouilly Fuissé is located on clay and limestone soils. Peaking at 350 meters, it is orientated east/south-east. It is straddling the towns of Fuissé, Pouilly, Solutré, Vergisson and Chaintré.
       
    • Viticulture: Harvests are done manually. Yields are controlled and the method called the reasoned struggle has been adopted. It consists in the diminution of the use of phytosanitary products by observing permanently the vines’ health.
       
    • Wine-making: The entire bunches of grape are pressed. The pure must rests for 36 hours for a first settling. This step is done to clarify it before the fermentation. A part of the harvest is vinified in barrels while the other is put in barrels to obtain a wine that is fresh, fruity and structured at the same time.
