Pungent aromas of wood and residual fermentation scents make the nose hard to evaluate. More interesting are the dense, powerful and sappy medium-bodied flavors that are tautly muscular and intensely citrusy on the impressively long finish where a touch of warmth slowly emerges. As is usually the case, this is the most 'full-on' wine in the range and while it doesn't offer much refinement, it is impressive in its fashion.

Pungent aromas of wood and residual fermentation scents make the nose hard to evaluate. More interesting are the dense, powerful and sappy medium-bodied flavors that are tautly muscular and intensely citrusy on the impressively long finish where a touch of warmth slowly emerges. As is usually the case, this is the most 'full-on' wine in the range and while it doesn't offer much refinement, it is impressive in its fashion.

Yellow golden color, the Les Brûlés shows aromas of ripe fruit, jam, melted sugar, hints of smoke and some delicate vanilla on the nose. On the palate, the attack is fresh and aromatic, round and dense, with a good fatness and a nice volume. Acacia honey, toasted bread some oak and hazelnut delicately smoked towards the finish. A full-bodied wine, rich and powerful. ~winery notes

The Le Brulé vineyard sits directly behind the Château Fuissé and is adjacent to Le Clos. The vineyard is true to it’s name (burned) as it’s fruit enjoys a full southern exposure to the full days sunlight throughout the growing season. The vineyard is steep and very well drained.

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 Antoine Vincent, Jean-Jacques Vincent’s son, 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 most famous vineyards of Les Brûlés, Les Combettes and Le Clos surrounding the château are bottled as specific cuvées to showcase their unique terroir. Presently, both Les Brûlés and Le Clos are in review by the INAO for premiers crus designation. Currently, Mâcon is the lone region in Burgundy lacking even one premier cru. But if one (or more) of the region’s vineyards wins approval, such a designation will be the first-ever premier cru in the Mâconnais.) Château Fuissé also produces quality-driven wines sourced mainly from family-owned properties in the Mâcon under the Vincent Signature label. Each of these wines is produced with the same care and expertise as the domaine bottlings.

France » Burgundy » Chateau 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 Antoine 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.

Château Fuissé also produces quality-driven wines sourced mainly from family-owned properties in the Maçon and Beaujolais under the Vincent Signature label. Each of these wines is produced with the same care and expertise as the domaine bottlings.

From Stephen Tanzer (Vinous Media): "Vincent considers 2014 to be a great vintage for the region, having produced classic, structured wines with excellent natural acidity. Yields averaged a healthy 48 hectoliters per hectare, which was comfortably within the range of 44 to 55 h/h that Vincent believes provides the best-balanced wines. The estate picked in early September and then carried out what Vincent described as a classic Burgundy vinification, with all of the wines finishing their malolactic fermentations and getting two batonnages per month from December to May. The '14s were blended in tanks and still on their fine lees when I tasted them in October. Vincent told me that 2012 here was a bit warmer than 2014; he believes that the wines, although fat and appealing, are less classic than the 2014s and for drinking earlier."
