Famille Paquet Pouilly Fuisse 2019

Tasting notes

This wine displays a yellow light color. A very atractve, well-defned nose with a pronounced fruity character (white and yellow fruit). A subtle minerality comes through afer swirling the glass. Well-structured on the palate, fat, fleshy and taut. Fine, delicate and very persistent. A classy white wine.

Food and wine paring

A great accompaniment to gastronomic cuisine, lobster, full-flavored fsh, calf sweetbread or sautéed mushrooms. Recommended serving temperature: 13°C.

Winemaking

Immediately upon arrival (20 mins maximum from pick up), the grapes are pressed (pneumatc). Fermentaton in temperature-controlled vats for 4 to 6 weeks using only indigenous yeasts. A complete malolactc fermentaton is carried out in order to preserve the wine’s complexity. Aging for 12 months on its fne lees in oak barrels (French oak from Jupille forest, CAVIN cooperage, 20% in new oak), and then 6 months in vats.

Vintage 2019

Despite the poor harvest, 2019 offers excellent quality. Climate hazards (heavy rains in May, frost and drought) have been the cause of record losses for the Estate (around -40% of harvest). We started the harvest at the beginning of September in order to maintain freshness. This vintage stands out by its remarkable balance and tremendous aromatc purity.
