Chateau de Beauregard Pouilly Fuisse Les Insarts 2016, 75cl
Château de Beauregard has been owned by the burrier family for 6 generations and is regarded As one of the major properties of the south of burgundy, in the Mâconnais/beaujolais region.
The vineyards cover 42 ha, including 22 ha of Pouilly-fuissé, 7 ha of saint-véran.
Pouilly-Fuissé is the most famous appellation of the Mâconnais where Chardonnay enjoys limestone-rich clay and varied terrain. Château de Beauregard produces Pouilly-Fuissé from 35 acres in three villages: Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly, and Vergisson. Half of the cuvée is fermented and aged in 228-liter Burgundian pièce with the remainder in stainless-steel tanks.
Pouilly-Fuissé is a full-bodied wine of rich and opulent flavors and texture. Ripe apple, lemon, cream, and brioche are Pouilly-Fuissé’s hallmark flavors. Château de Beauregard generally aims for clarity and freshness over oaky flavors and this wine shows a touch of toast and vanilla from aging partially in barrel.
Serve between 12 and 15°C in fine crystal glasses. ‘Les Insarts’ matches well with scallops, grilled or ‘en sauce’ fish, poultry (poulet de Bresse à la crème), ‘quenelles’ and ‘and of course goat cheese.
