The Chardonnays from Burgundy’s 2014 Pouilly-Fuisse vintage are off the charts. This is a wonderful wine, with notes of orange, pear, lychee and scintillating citrus fruits. 
 
92 Points - Jonathan H. Newman!
 "Pouilly-Fuisse has a wonderful reputation. An exceptional wine from the hillsides, this represents a more nuanced alternative to those who eschew oakier Chards from California. The hallmark of this wine is its power and finesse, emanating tantalizing aromas of white flowers with key lime on the palate."

Terres Secretes is an elite association of Southern Burgundian growers, related to Northern Burgundy's prestigious La Chablisienne. Pouilly-Fuisse has a wonderful reputation. An exceptional wine from the hillsides, this represents a more nuanced alternative to those who eschew oakier Chards from California. The hallmark of this wine is its power and finesse, emanating tantalizing aromas of white flowers with key lime on the palate. It’s nicely layered, with fresh, suave fruit such as ripe pear and orange, in addition to spiced minerality and zesty citrus fruits, with nice notes of honeysuckle, vanilla and almond. It spent one year in oak - one third of which was new. This is a well-made wine with crisp acidity, good balance, and a clean finish. Pair with crab cakes, soft shell crabs in a lemon butter sauce, turbot with brown butter and capers, shrimp scampi, or goat cheese. This will drink well for many years to come.

Pouilly-Fuissé
 
Grape Variety and Terroir
The vines are planted exclusively on hillsides and there is just one variety: Chardonnay, the noble variety of all the great Burgundy whites. Strung out over the southernmost part of the Mâconnais region, the soils are on a diversity of bedrock, primarily limestone, with exposures differing according to the patchwork of plots. 

Vinification
Pneumatic pressing to enhance smoothness, temperature-controlled fermentation, analytical monitoring of the vats and strict requirements for the quality of the barrel wood. Pouilly-Fuissé is made with the greatest of care and stringent selection of the vat contents.

Cellar Master’s Notes
A well-balanced, delicate, but powerful wine with aromatic complexity and good aging potential. It takes three to ten years for the all the wealth of this dry wine to come through in fine aromas of white flowers and citrus fruit, evolving into notes of hazelnut, almond, vanilla and gunflint as it ages. 

Serving and Acompaniment Advice
Through it can be enjoyed just for itself before a meal, Pouilly-Fuissé is primarily a wine whose delicacy and elegance enhance food, especially crustaceans and fish dishes. Full and generous in the mouth, it is also a perfect match for quenelles, white meat, and poultry in a cream sauce. Mâconnais goat cheese is also a fine partner for Pouilly-Fuissé in it’s youth.
