Château Fuissé - Pouilly Fuissé Le Clos 2019

Overview

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.

"An oaky style, featuring smoky vanilla, clove and resin notes underscored by candied lemon. Bracing acidity ties it all together, and the long finish extends the spice elements. Flamboyant and impressive. Drink now through 2025. 400 cases imported."
