Pouilly-Fuissé, Pouilly-Vinzelles, and St. Veran
We’ve reached the southern point of our journey!
This is one of my favorite regions, and it is here where the hills dramatically pop up, the villages are tucked away in the valleys, and great Chardonnay is poured by the gallons at wine bars.
It’s a neat area.
The key takeaway in the video is the abundance of quality to be found here, combined with what the key differences are between the Pouillys and St. Veran, Mâcon, and Mâcon-Villages.
