James Suckling "Pretty nose of spiced pears, mangoes, cloves, gun flint and lemon pith. It’s medium-to full-bodied, vibrant and elegantly spiced. Flavorful finish."

Wine Spectator "Bright, harmonious and expressive, this white exhibits peach, apple and lime flavors backed by a tangy structure. Balanced and lively, with fine length."

VertdeVin "The nose is fresh, fruity and offers a certain racy minerality as well as a fine straightness. There are hints of fresh, fleshy Williams pear, golden apple and slightly kumquat, with a hint of physalis and subtle hints of lemon blossom and racy minerality. The palate is fruity and reveals juiciness, acidity, minerality, good definition, a certain gourmandize, fine tension and accuracy. On the palate this wine expresses notes of tart, juicy kumquat, mesocarp and more lightly crisp golden apple combined with fine touches of lemon blossom, verbena, fine notes of racy, iodine minerality as well as a very discreet hint of toasted almond (in the background) and a subtle touch of zest. Good length."

Le Guide Hachette des Vins "On the nose, aromas of apple, pear and lemon. On the palate, a sharp minerality. An alert and expressive wine that has the build to age well."

Decanter World Wine Awards "Rich, ripe, and oaky with savory, smoky bacon notes. Precise, with pear and white blossom and a grippy saline finish."

James Suckling "Aromas of hawthorn, dried apple, mango and flint. Some custard, too. It’s full-bodied with crisp acidity. Creamy and straightforward." (2019 vintage)

Wine Spectator "A ripe style, this evokes pineapple and butterscotch flavors; a tad soft in structure, but not flabby. Tails off on the finish." (2019 vintage)

Les Vins Georges Duboeuf is one of the largest wine producers in France founded by the late Georges Duboeuf who was affectionately known as 'le roi du Beaujolais' (the king of Beaujolais) or sometimes pape du Beaujolais (Pope of Beaujolais). Les Vins Georges Duboeuf produces a staggering 3 million cases of wine annually. The company is most well-known for its popularization and production of Beaujolais wines. In 2018 Georges’ passed control of his company to his son Franck Duboeuf, who is considered to be one of the key specialists in Beaujolais, its terroir and its wine, and has shifted production to focus more on Beaujolais Nouveau.

Pouilly-Fuissé is the home of the finest white wines of southern Burgundy's Maconnais district. They are produced exclusively from Chardonnay grapes grown in the communes of Chaintré, Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly and Vergisson. The typical Pouilly-Fuissé wine is full-bodied, ripe and relatively elegant, with the best examples rivaling the finer wines of the Côte de Beaune. The zone currently covers around 800 hectares (2000 acres) of hillside vineyards, planted on limestone-rich clay soils over a granitic base. The 500m (1640ft) limestone escarpment known as the Roche de Solutré is located at the heart of the appellation's vine-growing area and towers over the vineyards below. The Clos Reyssié in particular is the most famous terroir in the village of Chaintré, one of the four villages in the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation.

Burgundy (Bourgogne in French) is an historic and highly respected wine region in eastern France. Burgundy wines have long had devout followers throughout the world and continue to do so today. Although Bordeaux produces about four times as much wine every year, Burgundy’s estimated 74,000 acres (30,000ha) of vineyards are considered to be of equal importance, producing some of the most exclusive wines on Earth.

Chardonnay is one of the world’s most popular grapes, Chardonnay is made in a wide range of styles from lean, to rich, creamy white wines aged in oak. Bolder, richer, full-bodied and buttery. The Domaine Pouilly Fuisse Clos Reyssie has been described to be buttery and complex, and is the perfect companion for a meal of chicken or turkey.
