Wine of the Week – Pouilly-Fuissé Solutré 2014

This lovely Pouilly-Fuissé from Vins Auvigue comes from fifth generation winemakers Jean-Pierre and Michel Auvigue in Maconnais, Burgundy. Their grandfather was one of the first in France to commence domaine bottling in the 1940s.

This wine has good minerality and spice, and you’ll detect scents of fruit (apples and peaches), citrus notes, white flowers and even hazelnuts. The winery uses only organic products. The vines are planted on heights above the village on former pastures with poor soil.

The wine is rich and “round” and will be good through 2020. Wine Spectator gives it 91 points. The suggested retail price is $36.99. Visit http://www.auvigue.fr/our_wines-ct7-cp55.html.
