Chateau Fuisse Pouilly-Fuisse Les Combettes 2011
One of the three monopole bottlings of Chateau Fuisse, the vineyard of Les Combettes covers just 4.4 acres within the village of Fuissé. Vines are densely planted in a well drained soil made up primarily of limestone, pebbles and small amounts of clay.
The 2011 Chateau-Fuisse Les Combettes has a tightly coiled, slightly earthier bouquet compared to the other cuvees. Eschewing new oak, the fruit is allowed to blossom with subtle honeysuckle notes emerging with time. The palate is very well-balanced with hints of quince and dried apricot. This is very elegant and poised with an approachable, generous finish that is as fresh as a daisy.
