Château Fuissé dates back to 1604 and has been in the Vincent family for five generations. Each generation has added land, increased quality and enhanced the worldwide recognition of the château. Today under direction of Antoine Vincent, Jean-Jacques Vincent’s son, Château Fuissé has reached the pinnacle of quality in the region with its wines rivaling the more famous appellations of Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Meursault to the north.   

The most famous vineyards of Le Clos, Les Brûlés and Les Combettes surrounding the château are bottled as specific cuvées to showcase their unique terroir. Both Les Brûlés and Le Clos have recently (and finally!) been designated by the INAO as premier cru in classification. Before this change, Mâcon was the lone region in Burgundy lacking even one premier cru. Château Fuissé also produces quality-driven wines sourced mainly from family-owned properties in the Mâcon under the Vincent Signature label. Each of these wines is produced with the same care and expertise as the domaine bottlings.

Château Fuissé’s Téte de Cuvée is a blend of over 20 prime vineyard sites throughout the appellation of Pouilly-Fuissé. Plots in Pouilly, with a high limestone proportion, contribute intense perfume yet more delicacy in the mouth. Those in Fuissé, where clay is more prominent, are less aromatic but fuller, more solid and structured. Vines are an average of 30 years old.

Vinification: Each vineyard site is vinified separately until the final blend is chosen following aging. 60% of the wine is aged in oak barrel (25% new) while the remaining 40% is stored in stainless steel to retain its purity of fruit.

This is rich in aromas of lemon, white peach, vanilla and toasted brioche that lead to a full-flavored palate of more citrus, tree fruits and stone flavors balanced by crisp, tangy acids. This may be our favorite vintage of Téte de Cuvée yet, and we taste this great white wine every year at the Burgundy barrel tasting event in NYC. Bravo, Antoine!
