Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chardonnay from Pouilly Fuisse opens with a mild green apple bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, and round. The flavor profile is a mild Bosc pear with nicely integrated minerality. I also detected some walnut flavors as well. The finish is dry and its pleasant flavors linger nicely after the wine is gone. This wine would pair well with three cheese spinach ravioli with a light cream sauce or trout almondine. Enjoy - Ken
Winemaker Notes: This Pouilly-Fuisse is a golden color that reveals the complex aromas of white flowers and pear. A classic wine that is sweet and rich on the palate leading to hazelnut and almond notes on the finish.
