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.
Blended from 10 plots of vines, all over 30 years of age, with most planted in 1929, this is Château Fuisse’s ultimate cuvee, and the one intended to have the most longevity. It’s incredibly rich and with subtle honey accents and notes of grilled nuts bal-anced by fresh peach and melon flavors. Long on the finish.
