Importer Notes:

"See that word “Pouilly?” It means what you think it means…the “Clos des Carras” is Pouilly-Fuissé in all but name. How’s that you ask? Well, Camille’s extraordinary monopole could legally use the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation if only Camille would wind his way through the labyrinth of French wine rules and then pay the Wine Police their “tribute” to get their approval. Camille definitely has better things to do with his time and money, and so do we all. Seeing the clos of Carras at the foot of the justly famous Rock of Solutré telegraphs just how good the Chardonnay it yields is. In fact, before Camille was able to acquire the vineyard (a real Mâcon insider, he knew the vineyard’s previous owner was considering sale before anyone else did!), the fruit was sold to Lafon and Thevenet…Boy, were they sorry to see it go. 

We are lovers of the petite White Burgundies of Mâcon, but tasting this wine will shift your focus north to the almond-inflected wines of Meursault…If you can taste the difference between “Clos des Carras” and first-quality village Meursault, good for you, because I can’t and I’ve been tasting for a long time…it’s that special. Only problem is there’s very little." 

Alcohol: 13%
