About the Wine
This superb white Wine by Bouchard Aîné & Fils is grown in the Côtes Mâconnaise area of Burgundy. Available in 75cl bottles, imported by FGV Boisset. Pouilly-Fuissé, Bouchard Aîné & Fils is an inspired wine, made from Chardonnay grapes. This wine has a cork closure and is one of a growing number in our list that can be enjoyed by vegan drinkers. Mouth-watering and minerally Chablis is perfect with simply prepared seafood, chicken and salads.
Chardonnay can produce quality wines in a wide range of climates, with a real varied style. In cool climates like Champagne or Chablis it produces a lean steely wine with pronounced acidity. In warmer climates it develops buttery, honey notes whereas hotter climates, it's richer in body with the flavour of tropical fruits.

Following on from a fantastic vintage the year before, French vineyards endured a mixed bag of weather conditions in the early part of the growing season followed by a long, hot summer which produced some memorable wines, even to rival to the excellence of the previous year.Explore France
