Pouilly Fuissé Vieilles Vignes 2009

Château Fuissé


Terroir: The Château Fuissé Vieilles Vignes is the top wine from the domaine. Vines average over 50 years old and are sourced from the three family vineyards of Le Clos, Les Combettes and Les Brûlés. Yields are very low from these parcels.

Vinification The Pouilly-Fuissé Vieilles Vignes is an incredible rich wine and is aged 100% in new oak. The wine is vinified at the new state-of-the-art winery and then aged for a minimum of 12 months in the cellars beneath the château.

Additional Information

Always the most powerful and complex of the cuvees; the 2009 Vieilles Vignes packs a firm punch of toasted oak, spice, dry earth and notes of apple, candied peach and stone fruit.

    "The toastiness of this wine's lees and the vanilla scents of its oak slowly turn toward minerality as it opens in the glass. It has the sensuality of the soil, evoked in flavors of shrimp shell broth, nutmeg and cashew. Finely structured, this will benefit from a year or two of age and a pairing with grilled langoustines."

    "A powerful wine; a touch raw on the day of tasting, but characterful, if adolescent. A good finish and plenty of fruit and minerality. It will sort itself out."

    "Here the wood is much more discreet with a restrained nose of fresh citrus, fennel and dried flowers that give way to full-bodied, well-concentrated and broad-scaled flavors that possess good punch and vibrancy on the long and moderately austere finish. While not as complex as the Brls, this is even more harmonious and I prefer the less oaked style."
