Juliénas 2017

Château Fuissé


Terroir: The domaine is set on 7 hillside acres in the heart of Julienas. Vineyards sit with southern exposures and well drained soils of granite, sand and clay.

Vinification: Grapes are hand-picked and very lightly crushed upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation occurs for a period of about 10 days with daily punching down of the cap to extract additional color, flavor and complexity. Following fermentation, the free run juice is separated and the grapes are pressed, the wine is then reblended. Malolactic fermentation and aging occur in 100% stainless steel.

Additional Information

Well structured, yet soft, elegant traditionally styled Juliénas, with delicious flavors of herb, spice and lovely soft fruit.
