'Marie Antoinette' Pouilly Fuisse is grown in several parcels belonging to Jean-Jacques Vincent's two sisters, and the wine is named after his mother, Marie Antoinette Vincent. The soils of the different vineyards impart their own special characteristics into the wine. The stony soils of the Vergisson Vineyards provide the beautiful acidity, elegance and minerality, while the clay soils in the Fuisse vineyard give the wine its full-bodied structure and generous fruit character. The wine is vinified separately in small oak barrels. The wines are then blended by Vincent to achieve a well-balanced Pouilly Fuisse, combining all the wonderful characteristics of the different 'terroirs'.


Serena Sutcliffe, MW, has referred to Jean Jacques Vincent as "one of the most brilliant makers of white Burgundy". He is the owner/winemaker at the celebrated Chateau Fuisse, and also produces an outstanding line of special selections under his own name. The 'Marie Antoinette' is one of these wines. I sold this wine to restaurants in NYC for many years while working for Frederick Wildman and Sons, and my clients loved it for the quality and the price! Also a New York Times favorite, who called it 'deliciously focused and refreshing...the Marie-Antoinette was weighty yet focused with smoky fruit and mineral flavors. 3 Stars.' This 2014 is outstanding, exhibiting real terroir coupled with fresh, pure fruit flavors.
