Pouilly Fuissé Le Clos 2015

Chateau Fuissé

With the 1992 vintage Chateau Fuissé produced their single vineyard bottling from their Le Clos vineyard. This cuvée has become one of Pouilly-Fuissé's top selection with age-ability of the famous wines of the Cote de Beaune.

Terroir: This walled parcel directly behind the chateau contains soil of dense clay and has a perfect south/ southeast exposure. The vineyard is planted entirely to Chardonnay vines that average over 45 years of age.

Vinification: Chateau Fuissé Le Clos is barrel fermented and aged in the cool cellars below the chateau for 12 months. 80% of the barrels are new. The wine is is then moved to the state-of-the-art winemaking facility for clarification and bottling. Quantities are limited to under 500 cases a year.

Le Clos is extraordinarily rich with layer upon layer of ripe apple, pair, and spice. The finish is driven by mineral with a firm gripping acidity.

    A difficult nose displays plenty of lactic character along with menthol and wood toast nuances. As is usually the case this is the biggest and most powerful wine in the range with its rich and full-bodied flavors that exhibit a lovely minerality on the succulent yet chiseled finish. This manages to carry its considerable weight and dry extract with grace and while it's no ballerina, it remains well-balanced.
