pouilly fuisse=unoaked chardonnay from burgundy,france

pouilly fuisse is a great entry to white burgundies for under $20…100 percent chardonnay and almost always no oak…great acids, great fruit flavors- green apples, guava, pineapple…tropical fruits…often these wines are very expressive and pair with summer foods such as grilled seafood, shrimp and oysters from the gulf, summer salads and light fruit and cheese plates…you can find these wines at joe saglimbienis, whole foods, central market and heb…if they don’t have a pouilly fuisse…ask for a macon…the next best wine that has similar characteristics and are under 20$$$...a great way to begin your study of white burgundies!!!  Also…here is a great website…quick and easy that i use all the time as a reference for french wines…
