JJ Vincent Pouilly-Fuissé Cuvée Marie Antoinette is a tribute to Jean Jacques Vincent’s mother, Marie Antoinette Vincent. The wine is sourced from several parcels including young vines from the Chateau Fuissé vineyards of Le Clos, Les Brulés 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.
Pale yellow color with hints of green. You get on the nose a touch of oak, lots of finesse and minerality with white flowers, lemon and apple scents. On the mouth, the wine is fresh, round and fruity with aromas of melon, kiwi, peaches and apricot and a nice minerality. Overall, the wine is nicely balanced and fresh with a great length.
As elegant as the perfect little black dress, this delightful Chardonnay sashays across the palate with crisp minerality, vibrant acidity and fresh flavors of apple, peach, and a kiss of vanilla. Trs chic!

Named after the current generation's grandmother, this wine comes from family vines. It is crisp with the strong mineral character typical of the vintage. The acidity and citrus fruits are up front and ready to drink now.

Always easy to recommend because it delivers far more than the price suggests, it's especially noteworthy in the 2014 vintage. It's real Pouilly-Fuiss with a subtle creaminess atop a firm and bright stoniness. Don't miss it."

"A clean, focused style, this offers peach, apple and mineral flavors matched to a supple texture and lemony acidity. Stays sleek and stony on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2018."

"(from Vergisson grapes and the young vines of Chteau Fuiss; meant to be an approachable entry-level wine; aged 15% in oak and 85% in tank; bottled in July): Fresh, crisp aromas of peach and acacia flower, plus a leesy nuance. Surprisingly concentrated for a basic bottling, with the pineapple fruit buttressed by pronounced salty minerality. Vergisson had lower maturity in both 2014 and 2015, Vincent told me, and was therefore the last village to be picked."

" A subtle touch of wood frames a pretty array of acacia blossom, lemon rind and pear scents. The round and supple flavors retain a good sense of detail and reasonably good depth before terminating in a delicious, clean and agreeably dry finale. This should reward a few years of cellar time but also be accessible young."
