Domain Wines / Pouilly-Fuissé "Les Crays"

A great lover of Burgundy, Jean-Luc AEGERTER acquired a small wine house in Nuits-Saint-Georges in 1988, with the ambition of participating in the revelation of the great terroirs of Burgundy.
In 1994, he bought the first vines of the Domaine, 1,17ha in one piece on the climat "Les Plateaux" in Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Through hard work, determination and passion, Jean-Luc and his son Paul, have built a Domain anchored in the mythical lands of Burgundy and radiating throughout the world.
Today, Paul AEGERTER is the sole manager of the family estate, and he vinifies and raises nearly 50 hectares of which 14 hectares are owned, covering most of the Burgundian appellations.

    A golden yellow color with slightly golden silvery reflections.
    On the nose, a ripe aromatic palette of yellow and slightly exotic fruits, embellished with almonds. Hints of eucalyptus and coriander bring freshness.
    On the palate, the wine is round, silky, with a nice balance, a light supportive freshness. A final with a more pronounced bitterness.

  • Food pairing

    Pike perch cooked on one side with crispy skin and crawfish broth to get the aromatic power of this wine. Or with frog legs and parsley, white meats and goat cheese.
