JJ VincentJ.J.Vincent produces a range of wines made with the same care and expertise as those made at the Vincent's historic domaine, Château Fuisse. Our Domaine is composed of plots is composed of a hundred or so parcels in the best locations situated in the center of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation. These small, exceptional plots provide a mosaic of the most sought-after terroirs of the appellation. Our vineyard holdings in Saint-Véran and Mâcon-Villages, are spread out around the commune of Fuissé. In addition to these great white wines of Burgundy, we own a Domaine located in the commune of Juliénas in Beaujolais.

The Château de Fuissé's vineyards, located in southern Burgundy, cover more than 40 hectares (+100 acres) spanning five appellations, including:

Pouilly-Fuissé : 25 hectares/62 acres, Saint-Véran : 8 hectares/20 acres, Mâcon-Villages : 3 hectares/7.5 acres, Mâcon-Fuissé : 1 hectare/2.5 acres, Bourgogne-Blanc : 0.5 hectares/1.2 acres, Juliénas : 3 hectares.

Made primarily from grapes sourced from Mâconnais vineyards owned by members of Jean-Jacques Vincent's family, these wines are of extremely high quality and represent remarkable value. Maison J.J. Vincent wines are both lovely and approachable wines for immediate consumption and a great introduction to the Château Fuissé range of great wines.

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

Great bottle

"Fruity on nose, with nice red and blue fruit flavors. Light body with a slight acidity. Great value."

Mike

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

"With a nose that will make you feel like you're standing on the vineyard, this Beaujolais has held up beautifully. Delicate finish of strawberries with slight iron notes tying it all together."

Christopher

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

"I am impressed by the silky texture of this Beaujolais. On the palette there is a natural touch of red fruits with a subtle hint of smokiness."

Peter

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

"Exuberant raspberries and blueberries on the nose that follow through on the palate with a pleasant earthiness. Great representation of the fantastic wine Beaujolais can offer."

Matt

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

"Wonderful dry Gamay from Beaujolais. The refreshing strawberry and raspberry fruit aromas make this a great choice any day of the year."

Dan

EMPIRE STAFF REVIEW

Outstanding Gamay!

"Why pay 2 or 3 times the price for Burgundy when there are great Beaujolais like this to satisfy the itch. Aromas of barnyard and under ripe red fruit lead into saturated raspberry and currant flavors with a tint of minerality and menthol on the finish. Smooth tannins add structure in the mouth. Luscious and soft. Great transition from winter warmer reds. Try it."

Mustafa

Wonderful

"Rarely does a Beaujolais disappoint and this is a typical one - fabulous balance between the fruity and typical earthy notes. One of the top 5 Beaujolais wines I've had. (ps best one by far is Ganevat Madelan 2013 which I would request Empire to please stock -- it is an amazing wine and at 40-50 bucks comparable to highest quality burgundy reds)"

David

"Excellent lighter red wine for the price...plenty of character."
