vins auvigue — pouilly-fuisée
"among the top half-dozen wines produced
in the region… "
– robert parker jr.
Chardonnay, produced the way the Auvigue
brothers do in southern Burgundy has become a very tough 'sell' in the
last while. At VinExpo in June 2001 we were mightily impressed once
again by the rare, delicate, high qualiity of their portfolio. The
trick is to find the quorum of diserning customers to make itheir wines
available the the aribtrarily restictive consignment system in Ontario.
Sadly, we have only one Auvigue wine in stock currently.
Macon-Solutré Cuvée Boisée 2008
An all-time favorite — Lovely bright nose of white fruits and flowers, a very light hint of oak, concentrated & balanced, a very bright finish, and very very long. (JPO, VinExpo 2009)
