This opulent white from Pouilly-Fuissé, the most distinguished wine appellation in Burgundy’s sun-soaked Mâconnais region, delivers enticing flavours of apple, peach and melon, rounded out with hazelnut and toasty notes. Serve lightly chilled at between 10-13°C to allow its rich flavours to shine through. It has a wonderful texture and floral aromas with a citrus edge. This wine can be cellared from 5 to 10 years.

Food Pairing Suggestion - Salmon with Beurre Blanc

Ingredients

2 salmon fillets, 80ml dry white wine, 1tbsp chopped fresh parsley, 2tbsp minced shallots, 45ml heavy cream, 120g butter (diced), olive oil, salt and pepper to taste.

Method

1. Simmer shallots, wine and parsley in a saucepan until the liquid has evaporated.

2. Add the heavy cream then, with the saucepan on low, slowly add the butter in 1tbsp increments gently whisking constantly. Strain through a fine sieve and keep on a low heat until ready to serve.

3. Heat the olive oil in a skillet and preheat the oven to 175°C. Season the salmon with salt and pepper on both sides, and sear in the skillet skin-side down until golden brown. Transfer to a baking tray and cook skin-side up for 8-10 minutes.

4. Once the fish is plated, spoon over the sauce and garnish with fresh parsley.

Domaine du Chalet Pouilly is located in the small and beautiful village of Solutre-Pouilly, on a sun-soaked hillside overlooking the small hamlet of Pouilly, in the heart of the "Pouilly-Fuissé" appellation. The Plumet family have produced wine here for more than a century, having planted the original vines in 1850, and were awarded first prize at the Mâcon wine competition for their Burgundy wine in 1928 - well before the Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint-Véran appellations had even been created! The viticultural and winemaking expertise gained over time has been passed down from generation to generation.

Today, the Domaine is run by Bernard and Agnès Léger-Plumet, who produce three stunning 100% Chardonnay wines; Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran and Mâcon-Solutré. We're delighted to import and offer these superb wines exclusively in the UK. They continue to impress the critics with Neal Martin of RobertParker.com stating that  "These are well worth seeking out."
