Château Fuissé - Pouilly Fuissé Le Clos 2018
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.
Terroir: 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.
Vinification: 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.
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.
