Domaine Jean-Paul Paquet & Fils Pouilly Fuisse Vieux Murs: A Chardonnay Masterpiece from Burgundy

Introduction

From the heart of Burgundy's renowned Mâconnais region comes a Chardonnay of exceptional pedigree: Domaine Jean-Paul Paquet & Fils Pouilly Fuissé Vieux Murs.  This exquisite wine embodies the elegance and complexity that have made Pouilly-Fuissé a global benchmark for Chardonnay. Hailing from the "Vieux Murs" ("Old Walls") vineyard, this wine showcases the unique minerality and finesse that characterise this esteemed terroir.

Tasting Notes

  • Appearance: Luminous pale gold with shimmering hints of green.
  • Nose: A captivating bouquet opens with aromas of ripe yellow orchard fruits - pear, peach, and a touch of quince. These fruit notes are beautifully intertwined with delicate floral hints of acacia and honeysuckle. As the wine breathes, subtle layers of toasted hazelnut, brioche, and a touch of vanilla emerge, adding depth and complexity. A distinct minerality reminiscent of wet stones adds an intriguing freshness.
  • Palate The palate is a harmonious symphony of flavours and textures. Ripe orchard fruits return, with a focus on pear and a hint of ripe yellow apple. A creamy, almost buttery texture is perfectly balanced by a vibrant acidity that provides both structure and length. The minerality sensed on the nose carries through with a graceful salinity. Subtle notes of toasted almonds and spice linger on the long, satisfying finish.

Food Pairing Recommendations

Domaine Jean-Paul Paquet & Fils Pouilly Fuissé Vieux Murs is a versatile and food-friendly wine. Its balance of richness, acidity, and minerality makes it an ideal complement to a wide range of dishes. Here are some inspired pairings:

  • Seafood: The creamy texture and subtle spice notes make this Pouilly-Fuissé a perfect match for richer seafood dishes like lobster with drawn butter, seared scallops with a citrus beurre blanc, or pan-fried Dover sole.
  • Poultry: The wine's weight and subtle nutty notes pair beautifully with roasted chicken, especially with a creamy mushroom sauce. It would also be a delightful accompaniment to turkey with all the traditional trimmings.
  • Soft Cheeses: Explore creamy cheeses like Brie, Camembert, or a decadent triple-cream delight. The wine's acidity will cut through the richness, creating a harmonious balance.
  • Vegetarian: Enjoy richer vegetarian dishes, such as butternut squash risotto or a creamy wild mushroom pasta. The wine's complexity will stand up to the earthy flavours.
