Pouilly Fuissé Vieilles Vignes 2010

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.

    "The 2010 Pouilly Fuiss Vieilles Vignes has a slightly fresher and more citrus driven bouquet with more mineralit than the 2011. The palate is crisp on the entry with very good tension. There are touches of truffle oil and wild mushroom beginning to creep in on the finish. This is not quite living up to my expectations from last year, perhaps because the 2012 and 2013 have thrown it into more focus. Still, this is a very impressive Pouilly-Fuiss that will repay bottle age."

    "Here too there is moderate wood influence that includes toast and oak spice notes on the lemon peel and acacia blossom aromas. As with the Brûlés, this is a big and dramatic wine but in this case the imposing flavors possess outstanding precision and notably more minerality on the focused, serious, firm and hugely long finish. While certainly muscular, this does not lack for a certain refinement that renders this slightly more impressive and complete than its stable mate. I should note that while the wood is certainly present my score assumes that it will more completely integrate with time in bottle."

    "Ripe and wood aged, this is rich with ginger and tropical fruit flavors. Dense and concentrated, it is a full-in-the-mouth wine—powerful and very age worthy."

    "A beautiful white, elegant and intense, graceful and firm, showcasing floral, grapefruit, apple, peach and mineral flavors on a supple texture. A citrus note lingers on the firm finish. Drink now through 2022."
