Pouilly Fuisse Cuvèe Marie Antoinette Vincent 2010

France » Burgundy » Maison J. J. Vincent » Pouilly Fuisse Cuvèe Marie Antoinette Vincent 2010

Summary

The JJ Vincent Pouilly-Fuissé Cuvèe Marie Antoinette is a tribute to Jean Jacques Vincents mother; Marie Antoinette Vincent. The wine is sourced from several parcels including young vines from the Chateau Fuissé vineyards of Le Clos, Les Brules and Le Combettes as well as several non-domaine yet family owned parcels throughout the appellation.

Cuvèe 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.

Notes

The 2010 Cuvee Marie Antoinette is clean and pure showing youthful layers of acidity, apple, peach and vanilla. Great as an aperitif or with a variety of seafoods or game.

Varietal: Chardonnay: 100%

    "From the Vincent family of Chteau de Fuiss, this is a ripe wine, with its green plum and nectarine fruits giving it roundness. At the same time, there is a bright, attractive edge of crispness, with a citrusy finish."

    "A fleshy style, with grapefruit, peach and spice notes coursing throughout the rich texture. Bright acidity adds definition and drives the lingering finish."

    "The areas of Maconnais and the Cote Chalonnaise are home to many villages that lend their (oft little known) names to extraordinarily good value chardonnay, again from reputable makers."

    "A commonly costly (and disappointing) appellation, but not from this maker; half the price, twice the flavor of other PFs."

    Grade: "Rooting out bargain Burgundy"

    "This wine's green grape flavors give it a waxy texture, bringing flavors of lemongrass and kumquat into the finish. A soft peppery white for steamed fish with ginger."

    "This wine is another example of the trend in Burgundy for high-quality estates, JJ Vincent of Chateau Fuisse in this case, to make a small amount of wine from purchased grapes and sell it under a lightly different ngociant label (Vincent).

    The Chardonnay comes from Vincent family members holdings in Vergisson and Fuisse, two of the prized communes in the Pouilly-Fuisse appellation, as well as from the younger vines at Chteau Fuisse. Refreshing citrus notes amplify racy green apple-like flavors. The judicious use of oak adds a subtle and engaging creaminess. It has good weight and invigorating mineraly finish. It may lack the complexity of the wines from Chteau Fuises, but it still delivers more than the price implies and is easy to recommend. The wine reminds us of why Pouilly-Fuisse became--and remains--so popular."

    "A discreet hint of wood frames fresh and ripe aromas of pear and white peach that introduce invitingly textured and relatively dense middle weight flavors that possess good mid-palate concentration as well as a mineral-infused, dry and lemony finish."

    Grade: 87-90 Points
