Description

A great wine produced by a large field. The nose is fine and elegant revealing aromas of white flowers (lime and acacia) and white fruits (peaches). Under opulent features, the structure is right, favored by good natural wealth. Finesse and distinction characterize it. Pouilly-Fuissé is very pleasant to drink from his youth. However, nature has made him a wine, so that the flavors more complex vanilla and hazelnuts will grow with time. Try to wait at least 3 years and up to 10 years to see the great vintages. Pierre-Emmanuel took over the operation of his grandfather in 1997. It operates 8.5 hectares of vines of which 6.8 Pouilly-Fuissé. The vines are 40 years old on average, the harvest is done manually and the wines are vinified and aged in oak barrels aged 5 to 10 years. Now head of 11.20 hectares of inherited family wealth since the eighteenth century, and very respectful of a spirit of pure traditions, Pierre-Emmanuel puts into practice methods in perfect harmony with nature. The treatments are reasoned and minimalist, the vines are plowed and the crop is harvested by hand, with the greatest respect for the vines and grapes.

Vintage Description

Traduction Devastating hail storms earlier this year left winemakers pessimistic about the prospects for 2014. Up to 40% of the vineyards in Meursault, Pommard, Volnay and Beaune were destroyed by ""size hail golf balls"" in June, with greater damage in other municipalities. But the good weather in September has led to both red and white wines and harvest should be finished by the middle of next week. Chardonnay is fantastic, came with a lot of acidity. The Black Pinot is concentrated with thick skins; they have a good balance between acidity and alcohol, but the fruit is tight. It will be a great year, good for aging. The only problem is quantity.
