Introduction : Situated at the southern edge of the Burgundy region, the delightful “terroirs” of the “Terres Secrètes” (“Secret Lands”) are spread over the rolling, sunny landscape of the Mâconnais region. These “terroirs” are located, selected and defined in the form of specific parcels of land – some of which are tiny – where all the typical features of the particular plot are concentrated. The Terres Secrètes wine growers have marked out these distinct enclosures, perfectly identified plots like little gardens of Eden, selected for their remarkable exposure and the age of their vines.
The wine growers of the Terres Secrètes are committed to sustainable development. The only cooperative wine cellar in the Grand Site Solutré-Pouilly-Vergisson, over the generations we have got to know our region and ensure its preservation.

Tasting notes: « A well-balanced wine, combining finesse, intensity, complexity of aromas and great potential for maturing. It takes between three and ten years for the richness of this dry wine to develop, with delicate aromas of white flowers and citrus, evolving towards notes of hazelnut, almond, vanilla or flint as the wine matures. » Cellar Master.
Serving temperature : 10 °C
Food pairing : Well-appreciated as an aperitif so that the taste can be enjoyed to the full, the sophisticated elegance of Pouilly-Fuissé makes it above all a wine to serve with meals, as a wonderful accompaniment to shellfish and fish. Its full-bodied roundness in the mouth also goes well with the local dish of quenelles, white meat or chicken served in a cream sauce. The local goat’s cheeses from the Mâconnais district also go well with a young Pouilly-Fuissé.
