Pouilly-Fuissé Âme Forest 2016
Pouilly-Fuissé Âme Forest comes from the very heart of Eric Forest’s vineyards. With massive concentration, this is a joy of a Chardonnay to drink now, but also one that could be laid down for many years. Lively and salty with ripe lime, crunchy nectarine, sesame brittle and gorgeously rounded oak, serve this alongside baked goats’ cheese and peach salsa; comforting creamy dishes like carbonara and parmesan chicken and mushrooms; or fresh fish cooked in butter and finished with a twist of lemon.
Eric Forest is an up-and-coming vigneron. He represents the fifth generation of his family to farm this domaine, and his grandfather imparted a wealth of knowledge in nature and biodynamics. Eric tends a tiny handful of plots on the steep slopes of the Rock of Vergisson, each planted between 1930 and 1979. These old vines produce a limited yield, but one of mesmerising intensity and depth. The wines are lovingly hand bottled and usually unfiltered, resulting in rich and full-on Chardonnay of the highest calibre.
