Chateau-Fuisse Pouilly-Fuisse Le Clos 2011
The Le Brule vineyard sits directly behind the Chateau Fuissé and is adjacent to Le Clos. The vineyard is true to it's name (burned) as it's fruit enjoys a full southern exposure to the full days sunlight throughout the growing season. The vineyard is steep and very well drained.
Chateau de Fuisse is recognized as the benchmark estate in Pouilly-Fuisse. Its rich history features a 15th-century pentagonal tower and a renaissance stone porch dating back to 1604. The two centuries-old, bottle-shaped yew trees that guard the tower are reproduced on each label as an authentic signature of their wines. The Vincent family has owned the estate since 1862. It is currently managed by Jean-Jacques Vincent and his son, 5th generation winemaker Antoine, combining traditional winemaking with carefully applied modern technology.
