Pouilly Fuissé Tête de Cru 2019

Château Fuissé


Terroir: Château Fuissé’s Téte de Cuvee is a blend of over 20 prime vineyard sites throughout the appellation of Pouilly-Fuissé. Plots in Pouilly, with a high limestone proportion, contribute intense perfume yet more delicacy in the mouth. Those in Fuissé, where clay is more prominent, are less aromatic but fuller, more solid and structured. Vines are an average of 30 years old.

Vinification: Each vineyard site is vinified separately until the final blend is chosen following aging. 60% of the wine is aged in oak barrel (25% new) while the remaining 40% is stored in stainless steel to retain it’s pure fruit.

    "This is rich, yet open and fluid, boasting peach, vanilla, toasted brioche and lemon flavors. Pulls together nicely on the finish, courtesy of its crisp acidity, with fine length. Sneaks up on you. Drink now through 2025. 900 cases imported."
