My favorite wine... Perfect with dinner
I am highly disappointed in the first bottle from the case I bought. I remember this wine as quite smooth and it was not smooth at all. It had quite a bitter taste to it. I'm sorry I purchased a case.
As usual, the Louis Jadot Pouilly Fuisse was in no way short of expectations. A very enjoyable wine for being only a 2 year-old vintage! The price was fantastic and shipping was superb and prompt!! VERY PLEASED!!
Wine Maker Notes
Maison Louis Jadot's principles of vinification balance tradition and technology, and focus on the purest expression of each wine’s terroir, taking the lightest possible hand in winemaking. Louis Jadot and Château des Jacques are attributed with revolutionizing the winemaking of Beaujolais. Jadot has invested in modern wineries dedicated to Beaujolais and Mâconnais wines only, and painstakingly vinifies all its wines rather than buying wines ready-made.For its Beaujolais and Mâconnais wines, Jadot practices a further, though expensive, practice called réplis, in which wines of a higher appellation are incorporated into a wine bearing the appellation below them. Thus, for example, Jadot’s Beaujolais-Villages will customarily contain a percentage of wines from Beaujolais crus.
The winter of 2009–10 was very cold in the Mâconnais and although the frozen soil collected good water
reserves, the spring weather was uneven, resulting in fewer berries than usual after June flowering. The crop
was small, so the 2010 wines will be scarce. Throughout July and August the fruit developed slowly but in good
conditions. Overall, 2010 is elegant and refreshing; more classically Burgundian than 2009, a more “extroverted,” ripe vintage. 2010 wines will reward cellaring and the best village wines will age well for at least eight years.
