A Chardonnay, famous for its finesse and elegance, from the separate villages of Pouilly and Fuissé . Very well-balanced between the fruit (pear and apricot) and floral notes, with a delicate touch of honey. Finishes with mineral and oak undertones. Tailor-made for seafood, shellfish, and white meats.
