Domaine Leflaive Pouilly Fuisse 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

Domaines Leflaive cultivates 3.3 hectares in the commune of Solutré-Pouilly, of which 2.7 hectares are in the appellation Pouilly-Fuissé and the rest are in the lieux-dits of Pragne, Le Mont, Pommard, Duyre, Crays, Nanche and Charmont. Pouilly-Fuissé, the flagship region of the Mâconnais, is cordoned to the west by a flotilla of prow-shaped rocks, of which the Rock of Solutré is the most famous. (At the base of this cliff is a Stone Age archaeological site containing the skeletons of over 100,000 horses — which gives the name to the archaeologic era of the Solutrian.) The bowl at the foot of the Rock of Solutré is the heartland of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation, with some of the best soilforming strata on which Chardonnay grows in all of Burgundy. Composed of fossiliferous marl and marly limestone, the area was under the shallow Jurassic sea millions of years ago.-Winer ynotes
