Much more subtle though not invisible wood frames the lemon and floral aromas of essence of green apple. The sleek, intense and overtly mineral-driven flavors terminate in a bitter lemon-inflected finish that is clean dry and sneaky long. This is much more refined though less powerful and a wine that should repay mid-term cellaring.

Decanter 93
Located in the heart of the village of Fuiss itself, on thin clay and marl soils over limestone at the top of the slope. The oldest vines were planted in the 1920s; average age is 60 years old. The wine is aged in cask on the lees and stirred every fortnight. It is a rich style, with a nose that is almost honeyed, showing floral notes and a ripe apple, almost pineapple fruit. The texture is dense and very long; it is a classic of the region and very traditional in style.

Chteau Fuiss 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 chteau. Today under direction of Antoine Vincent, Jean-Jacques Vincents son, Chteau Fuiss 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 Brls, Les Combettes and Le Clos surrounding the chteau are bottled as specific cuves to showcase their unique terroir. Presently, both Les Brls and Le Clos are in review by the INAO for premiers crus designation. Currently, Mcon is the lone region in Burgundy lacking even one premier cru. But if one (or more) of the regions vineyards wins approval, such a designation will be the first-ever premier cru in the Mconnais.) Chteau Fuiss also produces quality-driven wines sourced mainly from family-owned properties in the Mcon under the Vincent Signature label. Each of these wines is produced with the same care and expertise as the domaine bottlings.
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."
