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.

Domaine Luquet Depuis 1878

Domaine Luquet Depuis 1878 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.
There is no oak ageing here, so the delicious clean and ripe fruit and impeccable terroir are fully on show. This is a lovely ripe and structured 2021, fresh and quite intense on the nose, with an exotic and complex palate displaying mild peach, dessert apple and a crispness of acidity that really cleanses and adds an almost savoury ‘bite’ to the increasingly creamy finish. Leaves me wanting more!
An excellent match for fish, poultry and white meat.
