    Winemaker's Notes:

    Chateau Fuissé's Téte de Cru 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 Fuisse, where clay is more prominent, are less aromatic but fuller, more solid and structured. Vines are an average of 30 years old.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A selection from different parcels in the Château de Fuissé vineyard, this is a rich wine, initially soft, then showing a more textured character. It has weight, concentration, the wood adding another dimension to an already complex wine.

    Floral white peach flavors add depth to this brisk Pouilly-Fuisse, its lacy richness cut by frisky minerality. That seashell character in the finish places it with wood roasted oysters.

    Wine & Spirits

    Discreet wood sets off pretty pear and floral aromas that introduce solidly rich and generous middle weight flavors that possess an attractive touch of minerality on the moderately dry and persistent finish.Rating: 88-90
