Château Fuissé

This is undoubtedly the aristocratic domaine of Fuissé. Now under the control of brother and sister, Antoine Vincent and Bénédicte Tuinder-Vincent, son and daughter of Jean-Jacques Vincent. Whilst Antoine is now the winemaker at this great property, his sister runs the commercial side along with her husband, Philip Tuinder. The domaine holds 30ha of vines in total, in Pouilly-Fuissé, St Veran, Macon and Julienas. The wines are epitomized by fat, rich fruit, whose weight is perfectly balanced with a consistently outstanding backbone of tight acidity.

Tasting Notes

A beautifully expressive nose of citrus and white peach. The palate is big, rich and textured with powerful flavours, the richness of which is matched by the firm acidity as well as the precise, intense finish. This is an excellent wine of great quality and an intense minerality.

Food Matches

Great with monkfish kebabs wrapped in prosciutto.
