Chateau Fuisse 'Les Clos' Pouilly Fuisse 2011
Wine Advocate 93
"The 2011 Chateau-Fuisse Le Clos lies up the incline from the chateau: clay soils at the bottom for the power, marl for the complexity, and spice and limestone for the finesse at the top of the clos. They make four difference cuvees depending upon age of the vines and location on the slope. The 2011 is a blend of the clay and limestone parcel matured in one- or two-year-old barrels.

"The 2011 Chateau-Fuisse Le Clos lies up the incline from the chateau: clay soils at the bottom for the power, marl for the complexity, and spice and limestone for the finesse at the top of the clos. They make four difference cuvees depending upon age of the vines and location on the slope. The 2011 is a blend of the clay and limestone parcel matured in one- or two-year-old barrels. It has a beautiful bouquet with kaleidoscopic scents of orange zest, mint, licorice and Devonshire fudge all with stunning delineation. The palate is extremely well-balanced with a sharp, verging on shrill entry that fans out with hints of orange zest, dried apricot, spice and sour lemon. It is long and very complex. This is top-drawer Pouilly-Fuisse." ~N.M.
About Chateau Fuisse
CHATEAU FUISSÉ

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."
