2019, Chateau Fuisse, POUILLY-FUISSE "Le Clos" Magnum 1500mL

The stone walls of "Le Clos" vineyard, (a monopole ) surround the Château de Fuissé itself. The "vieilles vignes" or old vines (more than 50 years old) of this exceptional parcel express the perfect harmony of the three soil-types present within the vineyard, giving complexity this great White Burgundy wine.
Aged in oak barrels ( 80% new)

Elegant, cool and pretty aromas speak of discreet but not imperceptible wood, lemon zest, spice and plenty of floral elements. The racy, intense and beautifully well-delineated flavours possess good minerality and detail as well as very good power on the overtly saline-inflected finish. As is often the case, this appears to be the most complete wine in the range in 2019 and definitely one to consider.
Sweet Spot Outstanding.
91-94 Burghound.
