Terroir: One of the three monopole bottlings of Chateau Fuisse, the vineyard of Les Combettes covers just 4.4 acres within the village of Fuisse. Vines are densely planted in a well drained soil made up primarily of limestone, pebbles and small amounts of clay.
Vinification: The grapes are brought to the state-of-the-art winery where they are sorted and placed in barrel for fermentation. The must rests in the cellars of Chateau Fuisse for 12 months in used oak barrels (3 to 5 years old). To retain it’s vibrant acidity no new oak is used in this cuvee.
Chateau Fuisse has defined the Pouilly-Fuisse appellation; as important to the understanding of Burgundy as Chablis.
Chateau Fuisse 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 chateau and today under direction of Jean-Jacques Vincent and his son Antoine Chateau Fuisse has reached the pinnacle of quality in the region with wines rivaling the more famous appellations of Puligny Montrachet, Chassagne Montrachet and Meursault to the north.
The chateau owns more than 80 acres, each planted with Chardonnay covering four appellations in Pouilly-Fuisse, Saint Veran, Macon-Villages and Macon-Fuisse. The most famous vineyards of Les Brulees, Les Combettes and Le Clos surround the chateau are bottled as specific cuvees to showcase their unique terroir.
Chateau Fuisse also produces quality driven wines sourced mainly from family-owned properties in the Macon and Beaujolais under the Vincent Signature label. Each of these wines is produced with the same care and expertise as the domaine bottlings.
