Wine maker notes
With the 1992 vintage Chateau Fuisse produced theirsingle vineyard bottling from their Le Clos vineyard. This cuvee has become one of Pouilly-Fuisse’s top selection with age-ability of the famous wines of the Cote de Beaune. Terroir: This walled parcel directly behind the chateau contains soil of dense clay and has a perfect south/ southeast exposure. The vineyard is planted entirely to Chardonnay vines that average over 45 years of age. Vinification: Chateau Fuisse Le Clos is barrel fermented and aged in the cool cellars below the chateau for 12 months. 80% of the barrels are new. The wine is is then moved to the state-of-the-art winemaking facility for clarification and bottling. Quantities are limited to under 500 cases a year. Le Clos is extraordinarily rich with layer upon layer of ripe apple, pair, and spice. The finish is driven by mineral with a firm gripping acidity.

Producer
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.
