Château de Beauregard Pouilly-Fuissé 2016

The Burriers have been a prominent winegrowing family in southern Burgundy since the 15th Century and have owned the Château de Beauregard in Pouilly-Fuissé for six generations. Frédéric-Marc Burrier is the current family member in charge and bottles several different wines from Pouilly-Fuissé along with wines from Mâcon and Saint-Véran.

About the Vineyard

The Mâconnais takes its name from the city of Mâcon and sits between the regions of Côte Chalonnaise to the north and Beaujolais to the south. Maison Joseph Burrier owns over 70 acres of Chardonnay, within the appellations of Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran, and Mâcon-Bussières.

Wine Production

Pouilly-Fuissé is the most famous appellation of the Mâconnais where Chardonnay enjoys limestone-rich clay and varied terrain. Château de Beauregard produces Pouilly-Fuissé from 35 acres in three villages: Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly, and Vergisson. Half of the cuvée is fermented and aged in 228-liter Burgundian pièce with the remainder in stainless-steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

Pouilly-Fuissé is a full-bodied wine of rich and opulent flavors and texture. Ripe apple, lemon, cream, and brioche are Pouilly-Fuissé’s hallmark flavors. Château de Beauregard generally aims for clarity and freshness over oaky flavors and this wine shows a touch of toast and vanilla from aging partially in barrel.

Food Pairing

White Burgundy, with its richness, texture, and toasted flavors pairs well with light fish and shellfish and can counterbalance cream-based sauces. Oak-aged Chardonnay lends itself well to grilled fish, starches, butter, and toasted nuts.
