Domaine de la Sarazinière Pouilly Fuissé VII 2022
WineSpark Price €33.99
When I first met Thibaud Baudin in Beaujolais back in January, he told me of a friend up in Macon doing ‘amazing things’ with Gamay and Chardonnay.
This was exactly what members wanted more of at the time, so I shuffled around my itinerary to make sure I could see Guillaume for myself.
And I’m so glad I did - and I managed to come away with a small order of his best wines. It’s who you know and all that…
Pouilly Fuissé is probably the best value white wine in Burgundy. Centuries ago, scholars regarded it as on a par with Meursault and Montrachet.
This is a rich, ripe style of Chardonnay, made from 7 small plots, each adding its own character and complexity to the end result. Like with all Macon, there’s plenty of weight and intensity, but there’s a lovely elegance and charm about this wine too.
Due to a few tough vintages in a row around here, there isn’t much white Burgundy available. So snap up a couple of bottles while you still can.

It was just fab, real chardonnay without being over powered with oak. It has converted me back to a great grape. Paired with various simple seafood, from mussels to black sole, it complimented them all
Had it with smoked salmon and worked ok - not good with the turkey which was too strong for it
Sorry this didn't work out for you! It's a fairly full-bodied Chardonnay so maybe it was a bad bottle. Either way, I've sent you a refund for it now.
