    The freshness and refinement of a Pouilly-Fuissé wine

    The estate

    An historic name in Burgundy, Château Fuissé has belonged to the Vincent family for 5 generations. Since 2003, oenologist Antoine Vincent has been managing the family estate. Looking after an exceptional vineyard, the Château Fuissé estate stretches across almost 40 hectares and 5 appellations in southern Burgundy, including 25 hectares in the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation.

    The vineyard

    Located on a south-facing slope, the Château-Fuissé "Les Brûlés" plot covers nearly 0.7 hectares on marl soils. Embodying the expression of southern Burgundy, the Pouilly-Fuissé "Les Brûlés" of Château-Fuissé transfers the sunny character of its Climat into a wine of great richness and generosity, yet with a beautiful freshness.

    This great Pouilly-Fuissé wine became a Premier Cru in the 2020 vintage.

    Winemaking and ageing

    Manual harvesting followed by gentle pneumatic pressing, adapted to the quality and maturity of the grapes. Settling after 12 hours of cold rest. Slight oxygenation of the clear juice before being placed in oak barrels. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts and stirring of the lees. Partial racking three months after fermentation, followed by pre-assembly to promote the integration of the wood. Final blending during the summer, then rest in stainless steel tanks for several months before bottling.


    Chardonnay (100%).
