Bouchard Aine et Fils Pouilly Fuisse, 2012

Whitefish sauteed in butter, almonds and lemon: that was our dinner and the Bouchard Pouilly Fuisse was a perfect wine to go with it--not your butterball New World Chardonnay but a leaner Maconnais version of Chardonnay that picks up the lean flavors of the whitefish as well as the buttery almondine.

Medium deep yellow. Just enough oak for my taste to frame the peachy, citric fruit. A hint of honey, minerals and nuts. Blends seamlessly with the fish.

Pouilly Fuisse, which comes from two nearby villages (Pouilly and Fuisse), is a relatively pricey compared to other Macon Villages wines, but, at least from this estate, I find that the wine is worth the premium. (Also, I managed to find the wine at discount.)
