This certainly is a sensational wine. The ample oak influence is balanced by a beautifully layered nose of dried yellow stone fruits, orange peel and floral nuances. There is superb concentration and richness to the big, powerful and broad-shouldered flavours, and the palate possesses an explosively long, precise, saline finish. One of the Mâconnais', and one of Burgundy's, truly great bottles!
Terroir: The Chateau Fuisse Vieilles Vignes is the top wine from the domaine. Vines average over 50 years old and are sourced from the three family vineyards of Le Clos, Les Combettes and Les Brules. Yields are very low from these parcels. Vinification The Pouilly Fuisse Vieilles Vignes is an incredible rich wine and therefore can stand up to 100% new oak aging. The wine is vinified at the new state-of-the-art winery and then aged for a minimum of 12 months in the cellars underneath the chateau.
