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.
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.
