Pouilly-Fuisse Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Simonin
The vineyards are located in the very best part of the Maconnais (southern Burgundy) on the slopes of Solutré, near the village of Fuissé. This is a small family estate making the finest Macons around. Jacques and Dominique Simonin now run Domaine Simonin which was founded in 1803. Their vineyards are on clay and limestone soils with good altitude – these perfect natural conditions help to explain how the wines have such richness and concentration.

Pouilly-Fuissé can be too rich and honeyed without the necessary acidity and purity of fruit to balance it. No such problems here – a simply wonderful wine. Rich and concentrated yes, but overflowing with complex aromas and flavours of peach, lemon, toasted bread, acacia honey and so on.Download Technical Note
