Its emerald-gold tones reflect a wine of finesse and distinction ; the palate is harmonious, fresh and full of flavours; hazelnuts, toasted almonds, grapefruit and lemon. It must be served rather chilled and goes very well with shellfish, fish, white meats in cream sauce and poultry.
Ripe, supple and of medium body, this classic expression of Pouilly-Fuissé shows vibrant Chardonnay fruit flavors with notes of melon and minerals, gently touched with oak, ending in a fresh, silky finish.
The Pouilly Fuissé "Les Petites Pierres" is partly vinified in stainless steel tanks and partly in oak barrels. Therefore it gives a very fresh and fruity wine as well as very structured and full.
This wine is produced with Chardonnay grapes only on the slopes of Fuissé, Pouilly, Solutré, Vergisson, and Chaintré. The production is small : 700 ha.
Generally, the wines from the commune of Solutré and Pouilly, north of Fuissé, are the most delicate and feminine, whilst those of Fuissé itself are the most firm and assertive.
