Pouilly-Fuissé is the name of a village in the Mâconnais producing highly distinctive Chardonnay wine. The vineyards producing this wine are part of a breath-taking landscape where the limestone and heavy clay soils combine to create a unique terroir. Pouilly-Fuissé is one of the most popular as well as most prestigious wines from southern Burgundy.

Pouilly-Fuissé 2015 shows a pale yellow colour. There is a delicate and fruity nose with aromas of grapefruit and lime. The palate is lively and shows peach and apricots notes as well as more muscat-like flavours.

Country Of Origin: France

The Latour family are long established in Burgundy's wine trade. They began as vine growers in the village of Aloxe-Corton as early as 1760s and went on to establish today's business, Maison Louis Latour, in 1797. Today they are one of the region's most famous names, creating wines from their own 50 hectare domaine in the Côte d'Or and from grapes and wines purchased through the negociant arm of the business. They also produce all their own barrels at their small, traditional cooperage in Savigny-Lès-Beaune.

The company has been in family ownership for 11 generations and is now led by the seventh person to take the name Louis Latour. He is ably supported by head winemaker Jean Charles Thomas and domaine director Boris Champy.
