Item Description
100% Chardonnay
An excellent example of the true potential of the wines of Pouilly-Fuiss and a great introduction to the wines of Chteau Fuiss. The wine is rich and robust in the mouth, lovely back bone for the sweet citrus peel and ripe pear fruit. But, retains its lean acidity and freshness throughout.

Chteau-Fuiss Tte de Cuve draws its origin from the geological diversity of our terroirs. The vinification is chosen according to the character of each plot. The personal imprint of Antoine Vincent reveals all the greatness of this wine within the Pouilly-Fuiss appellation.
Vinification in oak barrels (60%) and in vats (40%).

The Vincent family, owner for five generations (1862), ensures the sustainability of the estate. Thanks to the transmission of know-how acquired over the centuries, the wines of Chteau de Fuiss are recognized throughout the world. The Chteau de Fuiss, located in the heart of the eponymous village, reveals the authenticity of a family home rich in history through its 15th century pentagonal tower and its Renaissance porch dating from 1604.

The Chteau de Fuiss estate, in southern Burgundy, covers around forty hectares spread over 5 appellations:
Pouilly-Fuiss: 25 hectares, Saint-Vran: 8 hectares, Mcon-Villages: 3 hectares, Mcon-Fuiss : 1 hectare, Bourgogne-Blanc: 0.5 hectares, Julinas: 3 hectares.

The expression of the terroir through its grape variety, Chardonnay, and the vintage, constitutes the foundation of the wines of Chteau de Fuiss. The vinification is therefore chosen according to the character of each parcel. Our wines thus fully reveal finesse, elegance and power in line with the Great Whites of Burgundy. ~Antoine Vincent
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."
