Denis Bouchacourt

Pouilly-Fuissé Cuvée "Ammonite" 2015

AOC Pouilly-Fuissé, Burgundy, France

100% Chardonnay | 15% ABV


Discover this French white wine made with 100% Chardonnay grapes from Burgundy. This wine is named after the ammonites or large sea fossils that were found in the depths of its soil. Not only do they decorate the label, but they also impart a natural minerality to the wine. A wine of character and depth. This Cuvée Ammonite is as rare as a Dodo burger, with only a few hundred bottled every year.

Guide to icons

Robe of deep gold. Complex nose of marzipan, custard, and stone fruit (Mirabelle plum) on a mineral background. The attack is slightly buttery, marked by the long ageing in barrels. The wine is ample and fat but the finish is very dynamic, and airy. Outstanding persistence of the aromas.

Service: Serve chilled at 7-13°C.

Food Pairing: Excellent with pork, poultry, fish, shellfish, pasta in white sauce, cheese, and vegetarian dishes.

Meet the winemaker: Denis Bouchacourt

The 5.5-hectare 3rd generation domaine is located in Solutré, planted on hillsides.

This area is a little hotter with less frequent rainfall than other areas in the north of Burgundy. These Mediterranean influences mean that the grapes ripen slightly faster than in the other winegrowing areas of the region which influences the personality of the wines. Limestone sub-soil lies across much of the terrain.
