The Corsin Domain’s Pouilly-Fuissé ‘Vieilles Vignes’ displays a bright golden colour with a hint of green. Its subtle bouquet with a woody-vanilla note enhances the slightly sharp, sophisticated fullness on the palate mingled with a generous underlying impression of toasted bread. A Burgundy wine full of character!
Between 13° and 14°C
Goes perfectly with fish, white meats…. Why not treat yourself to a ‘calf sweetbread and cream’!
