Domaine Roger Luquet
Domaine Roger Luquet is run by fifth generation Patrick Luquet. This 26 ha family domaine is very much in the heart of the village
of Fuissé, in the Saône-et-Loire department (7 kms from Mâcon) Indeed the ‘Clos du Bourg’ is situated in front of the Church in the centre
of the village. Patrick uses no oak ageing in the winemaking process whatsoever, producing wines that express both fruit and terroir with no interfering dimensions. As Patrick says “We really appreciate our terroir”. Renowned for their purity his
wines are beautiful from an early age.
Produced from vines that average nearly 60 years old, situated in the Clos just in front of the church in the centre of the village of Fuissé. The church protects the vines from the westerly winds which makes this the warmest parcel of Fuissé. This vineyard was initially planted back in 1927 by the Great Grandfather of the current generation, Maurice Luquet. There is no oak ageing here. A full and rich bouquet is enhanced by a touch of fresh, ripe banana. The mouthfeel is rich and creamy, the depth deriving from one year on the lees. There are generous notes of apple and lychee as well as an exotic mango richness. This is quite superb!
An excellent match for fish, poultry and white meat.
