Wine of the Week

Is Pouilly-Fuissé passé? Mais, non! From one of the best-known appellations in Burgundy just south of the Macon, this label from the house of Drouhin remains a favorite at tables in the U.S. and abroad. A cool-climate Chardonnay with differing characteristics from its California counterparts, the wine offers tart apple and lemon-lime aromas with a distinctive, pleasing mineralilty and clean, crisp flavors of citrus on the palate braced by a vibrant acidity. The 2004 vintage is excellent. Drink now and over the next five years. More food friendly than its often heavier oaked California cousins, the wine matches well with dishes like oysters Bienville and trout Meuniere, shellfish, sweetbreads and poultry. Where to buy it: Hopper's Wines and Spirits, The Wine Seller and Dorignac's. Where to drink it: Galatoire's, K-Paul's, Antoine's, Arnaud's and Tommy's Cuisine.
