2018 Pouilly-Fuissé 'Vieux Murs' Loron
2018 Pouilly-Fuissé 'Vieux Murs' Loron
Pouilly-Fuissé is one of Burgundy’s most famous names, and its wines stand head and shoulders above most others from the Mâconnais, much as the rock of Solutré towers above the region’s vineyards. The historic Maison Loron’s ‘Vieux Murs’ cuvée is a very classy expression of chardonnay and a firm favourite amongst the Mr.Wheeler team. This is a limited ‘cellar release’ from Loron, with only 30 six-packs available at the special price of £135 - a particularly fine burgundy to enjoy with richer, flavoursome dishes this Christmas and a real treat.
The wine is nicely weighted, 2018 was a warm vintage after all, and maintaining a balance on the palate is where the artistry of wine making truly shows. Tropical stone fruit and grapefruit dominate initially, leading to a warming, toasty character - no doubt from time spent in fine French oak - culminating in a zingy, fresh, mineral-infused finish which lingers in the mouth. Delicious.
About the producer
Maison Loron, located in the Mâconnais, is one of the oldest vineyard owners in the south Burgundy, tracing its history back to 1711. The best vineyards of Pouilly-Fuissé - around the famous rock of Solutré are at higher altitude than most of the Mâconnais, giving the wines an extra level of character, aromatic intensity and precision. Legend has it, the original prehistoric inhabitants of the rock would hunt horses by driving off the edge of this sheer drop of several hundred metres.
