Famille Vincent - Pouilly Fuissé Cuvée Marie Antoinette Vincent 2018

Overview

Famille Vincent Pouilly-Fuissé Cuvée Marie Antoinette is a tribute to Antoine Vincent’s grandmother mother, Marie Antoinette Vincent. The wine is sourced from several parcels including young vines from the Château Fuissé vineyards of Le Clos, Les Brûlés and Les Combettes as well as several non-domaine yet family owned parcels throughout the appellation. Cuvée Marie Antoinette is created with a fresh, youthful profile in mind. The grapes are vinified in stainless steel tank with only about 25% of the total blend seeing any time in oak. The resulting wine is pleasing, refreshing and crisp on the palate, with youthful layers of acidity, apple, peach and vanilla. On Bourgogne Blanc page: Famille Vincent Bourgogne Blanc is a tribute to Jean Jacques Vincent who managed the family domaine of Château Fuissé for over past 40 years. It is a distinctive wine exclusively from the southern part of Burgundy near Mâcon and Pouilly Fuissé. The Mâconnais area offers naturally rich soils with a high proportion of clay which leads to a wine rich in mineral character. Summer temperatures are generally higher in the Macon than in northern Burgundy, affording the wines rich and ripe fruit character and soft acidity. The full maturity of the skins adds an extra dimension to the grapes, a ripe exotic character, with hints of brioche. To preserve the fresh fruit characters, 70% of the wine is vinified in stainless steel tanks with the remainder sees about 6 months in oak barrels.

Weathering The Storm With Winter White Wines -- "A tasty medium-bodied wine with yellow apple and juicy pear flavors, lemon curd, slightly botanic, a friendly player with soft cheeses, creamy pastas, sausage."

"There is a touch of petrol to the essence of pear, apple and white flower aromas that exhibit a top note of grapefruit. The racy and tension-filled medium weight flavors possess fine depth on the refreshing and bitter lemon-inflected finish that is attractively dry if ever-so-mildly warm finale."
