2019 Pouilly-Fuissé ”Climat Vieilles Vignes“

Domaine Robert-Denogent
Discount Eligible $73.00
AT CART MAX

This bottling from the Robert brothers is exceptional in every sense of the word. The year 2019 yielded a terribly tiny harvest due to tragic frosts, forcing them to blend three single vineyards into one bottling. Most of the fruit comes from La Croix, a parcel that’s remarkable for its schist soil and for ripening earliest in the region. They added to this two premiers crus: Les Cras––a limestone and marl parcel—and Les Reisses––a monopole of older vines. The resulting Climat blend may be the silver lining of this vintage, as it exudes intense concentration and an exotic nose, and showcases their signature long élevages, native yeast fermentation, and multiple layers of varying soil types. Do not miss this gorgeous and rare bottling.

About The Region

Burgundy

map of Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
