Vinification: Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation take place entirely in barrel. The wine is aged for 12 months in new oak in the cellars of Château Fuissé.
Additional Details editYellow golden color, the Les Brûlés shows aromas of ripe fruit, jam, melted sugar, hints of smoke and some delicate vanilla on the nose. On the palate, the attack is fresh and aromatic, round and dense, with a good fatness and a nice volume. Acacia honey, toasted bread some oak and hazelnut delicately smoked towards the finish. A full-bodied wine, rich and powerful. Technical Details

"The 2019 Pouilly-Fuissé Les Brûlés has turned out nicely, offering up aromas of crisp orchard fruit, toasted nuts and vanilla pod. Medium to full-bodied, with a pretty core of fruit, lively acids and a delicately oak-inflected finish, it's already showing well."
