Owned by the Vincent family for more than five generations with Antoine Vincent now in charge of winemaking, Château Fuissé is a benchmark in the appellation. With some of the top vineyards in the area in their ownership on a wide variety of soils, Château Fuissé is at the forefront of the application to the relevant body to have certain vineyards designated as Premiers Crus, in line with the rest of Burgundy.
Our best-selling JJ Vincent wines are from vineyards which belong to members of the family through inheritance and therefore are not part of Château Fuissé itself, although they do all the work in the vineyards and make the wines on behalf of their relatives. Tasting here is an object lesson in the importance of terroir - all wines made with the same grape, harvested by the same people, the winemaking varying according to the fruit at harvest time, and each of their six Pouilly Fuissés are recognisably different. Fascinating stuff.
