Wine of the Week: Pierre Vessigaud Pouilly-Fuissé 2009 Vielles Vignes

March 7th, 2013

Pierre Vessigaud has created another masterpiece in his 2009 Pouilly Fuissé VV.  Bright and golden in color with an expressive nose showing floral and mineral notes.  It is rich on the palate, characterized with peach, pears and roasted almond notes.  Pierre’s family roots can be traced back to 1700s, and documented to have been making wines as early as the 1850s.  For at least five generations these VV (old vines) have been growing here, and this generation the viticulture is done organically.  Vessigaud also keeps his wine for about one year longer in bottle before selling than most of his neighbors.  The minerality of the old vines, coupled with Pierre’s dedication to vinficaiton has created a beautiful white burgundy.   Very little of Vessigaud’s wines make it into the US, so drink deep and enjoy when it comes across your lips. Vessigaud PF
