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

Ripe, complex, wood-aged wine. It has weight in its structure and mineral texture. Along with this, there is rich fruitiness, yellow fruits laced with lime. Concentrated and dense, this is a powerful wine, showing great potential for the future.
