Editorial Reviews for Louis Jadot Pouilly-Fuisse
Oaky on the nose, but lightly so with caramel and cedary overtones to the rather earthy core of fruit. Lovely mouthfeel, elegant if powerful with excellent depth but no extra fat to weigh this down. Nice bitter almond core on entry is followed by acidity that is bright, lending this a crisp orchard fruit quality in the mouth that turns ripe and almost peachy on the back end. Excellent oak integration, though on the long finish it plays a prominent role, contributing layers of flavor as well as some tannin. Very young but already showing great potential. 93pts
really nice, Almost like a chardonnay with more complexity and less acrid smoke taste
Not much bouquet - flinty, dull. Acidic with very little fruit expression. Short finish. Was disappointed with this wine - was expecting more fruit and some oak. Very flat.
Smells buttery, toffee, caramel. Tastes almond-y, honey
It's simple. And I like it. :)
Nose of citrus fruits, lime and mineral touch. The taste was slightly sweet at the beginning with a surprisingly little sour aftertaste of citrus and melon. I could not really taste the heavy oak.
Gently touched with oak? Really? Maybe they waved the oak over top of the vat... I admit, I am not a chardonnay lover anyway, but I just don't understand how it has acquired such a fanatical following - because it's French and affordable? I don't know. My husband likes it too, poor soul. Well, he can drink our bottle on his own. I will be cracking the Chateau St. Michelle Chardonnay or the Cline Viognier that night.
I like CA Chardonnay and tried this to recalibrate, wish I hadn't: too citrus, no oak. I'll drink it but won't purchase again
External Reviews for Louis Jadot Pouilly-Fuisse
Maison Louis Jadot produces a Pouilly Fuiss with emerald gold tones which reflect a wine of finesse and distinction; the tasting is harmonious, fresh, full of flavors with hazelnuts, toasted almonds, grapefruit and lemon aromas.
A full-bodied, complex Chardonnay, boasting peach, apple and mineral flavors accented by a touch of oak. Has a fine structure and is well-integrated, ending with a long, juicy aftertaste. Drink now through 2012.
Bright yellow-gold. Pure but reticent aromas of Meyer lemon, white flowers, smoky minerals and baking spices. Citrus and orchard fruit flavors are braced by tangy mineral and lime zest qualities, giving good back-end grip to this subtly creamy wine. The spiciness repeats on the focused, dry finish.
Enticing aromas of honey and butter yield to citrus and vanilla flavors in this crisp, straightforward white.
When one thinks of Pouilly-Fuissé, the words sophistication, refinement and elegance come to mind. Jadot is one of Burgundy's top negociants, and this 100% Chardonnay is a splendid example of their superior quality. Elegantly structured with subtle vanillin and oak aromas, the fruit is well integrated and rich on the palate with a refined finish. You're sure to see it on a lot of restaurant lists, so enjoy this wine with the most sophisticated cuisines featuring seafood and poultry.
There's some oak masking the fruit now, but plenty of wine underneath. Apple, honey and spice flavors linger and it's well-balanced. Drink now through 2009.
