In this week's Life in a Bottle, Ancona's Wine Director Codey Foster sips and chats about 2018 Domaine Cheveau Pouilly-Fuissé 'Trois Terroirs -100% Chardonnay
Codey says, "You know Cheveau. This Domaine has been a darling of Ancona's for many years now. This little estate, perched in the rolling hills of the Mâconnais, represents the true ilk and charm that lower Burgundy has to offer. You don't have to pay Côte de Beaune price tags to enjoy a white wine of magnificent depth that is packed with minerals and tastes of sunshine."

The 2018 bottling of Trois Terroirs is perfectly balanced and just stacked with freshly-sliced lemony opulence--punctuated by yellow apples, crisp pears, crushed seashells, taut mineral flint, lemon cream, and long, persistent stoniness. This concentration comes through on the palate which is intensely satisfying: crispy but never sharp. Rich in flavor, but light on its feet. A true reminder of why I love this Domaine. 13.5%
Pair it up: A flawless accompaniment to chilled king crab, grilled lobster tail, panfried foi gras.
On Longevity: At its very peak right this moment but not going anywhere soon--drink it over the next 6-8 years
