Château Fuissé

This is undoubtedly the aristocratic domaine of Fuissé. The Château Fuissé dates back to 1604 and has been in the Vincent family for five generations. Each generation has added land, increased quality and enhanced the worldwide recognition of the château. Today under direction of brother and sister Antoine Vincent and Benedicte Tuinder-Vincent, Château Fuissé has reached the pinnacle of quality in the region with its wines rivaling the more famous appellations of Puligny Montrachet, Chassagne Montrachet and Meursault to the north. The château owns more than 80 acres, each planted with Chardonnay covering four appellations in Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint Véran, Macon-Villages and Macon-Fuissé. The most famous vineyards of Les Brulés, Les Combettes and Le Clos surround the château and are bottled as specific cuvées to showcase their unique terroir.

Tasting Notes

Incredibly rich and honeyed, with notes of grilled nuts balanced by fresh peach and melon flavors. Long on the finish.

Food Matches

Enjoy with oquilles Saint-Jacques with morels and white wine sauce.
