Chateau Fuisse 'Les Clos' Pouilly Fuisse 2019
Burghound 93
Elegant, cool and mildly exotic aromas speak of discreet but not imperceptible wood, lemon zest, spice and plenty of floral elements. The racy, intense and beautifully well-delineated flavors possess good minerality and detail as well as very good power on the overtly saline-inflected and impressively persistent finish where the wood telegraphed by the nose reemerges. Definitely one to consider.

Wine Spectator 92
An oaky style, featuring smoky vanilla, clove and resin notes underscored by candied lemon. Bracing acidity ties it all together, and the long finish extends the spice elements. Flamboyant and impressive. Drink now through 2025. 400 cases imported."

Created from a monopole vineyard, “Le Clos” is extraordinarily rich with layer upon layer of ripe apple, pair, and spice. The finish is driven by mineral with a firm gripping acidity. ~winery notes

With the 1992 vintage Château Fuissé produced their single vineyard bottling from their Le Clos vineyard. This cuvée has become one of Pouilly-Fuissé’s top selection with age-ability of the famous wines of the Côte de Beaune.

This walled parcel directly behind the chateau contains soil of dense clay and has a perfect south/ southeast exposure. The vineyard is planted entirely to Chardonnay vines that average over 45 years of age. Château Fuissé Le Clos is barrel fermented and aged in the cool cellars below the chateau for 12 months. 80% of the barrels are new. The wine is is then moved to the state-of-the-art winemaking facility for clarification and bottling. Quantities are limited to under 500 cases a year.
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."
