Elaboration of Louis Jadot Pouilly Fuissé 2017
Louis Jadot Pouilly Fuissé 2017 (Chardonnay)
- View: Light golden colour with emerald tones
- Nose: Initially floral and melon scent with crisper notes of lemon and green apple - Mouth: This Chardonnay is an elegant medium-bodied white wine with a good acid balance, an exemplary expression of grapes from the Burgundy region. The taste is complex but harmonious and fresh, with notes of hazelnuts, toasted almonds, and bready fruit.
VINEYARD: Grown in Louis Jadot's Pouilly-Fuissé, a vineyard in the Mâconnais region of Burgundy in central France.
AGEING: The grapes are gently pressed and then fermented in new and old French oak barrels. The use of new oak is judicious in order to ensure a subtle but not overpowering oakey essence. The ageing lasts about 15 months on fine dregs before preparation for bottling.
PREPARATION: The House of Louis Jadot has been producing outstanding Burgundy wines for 150 years, since its founding in 1859. The producers adopt a minimal interventionist philosophy to allow the wines from this historic region to speak for themselves. The grapes are carefully harvested by hand in small batches to preserve the integrity of the fruit.
PAIRING: Poultry, shellfish, pasta with cream sauces, and vegetarian cuisine
RIGHT SERVING RECOMMENDED SERVING TEMPERATURE: 9-12ºC

Reviews of Louis Jadot Pouilly Fuissé 2017
It seemed a light golden yellow colour . Good on nose with a predominance of jasmine. Very light and pleasent wine in the mouth.
I'd like to try it with a carpaccio.
