Pouilly Fuisse 'Les Crays' Dom Auvigue 2021/2022 (now called 'Les Villages')
£34.95 per bottle
Jean Auvigue produces Pouilly Fuissé of the highest quality with vibrant Chardonnay fruit. The palate is complex with a clean minerality, while a brief maturation in wooden cask adds toast, vanilla and sweet spice to the rich apple flavours. A blend of both stainless steel and oak cask fermentation helps to capture the classic terroir and delicious rich ripe flavours that are unique to these vineyards.
Salmon, comté, goats cheese, sushi, spicy curry, pizza and quiche.
Jean-Pierre and Michel Auvigue are third generation proprietors at the Moulin du Pont, their winery is a converted mill in the Macon region of southern Burgundy. This dynamic family business is a specialist in the wines of Pouilly, Fuissé, Saint-Véran and other Maconnais whites where the chalk and limestone hills give way to the volcanic slopes of Beaujolais to the north of Lyon. Their production is small but the quality is of the highest level, indeed amongst the top three or four of all producers of Pouilly Fuissé. They are favourites in many of the Michelin starred restaurants in France and have an international reputation, being regularly applauded by Robert Parker.
