Winery Notes:

Château-Fuissé's Pouilly-Fuissé Tête de Cuvée is sourced from more than 40 parcels and located throughout the estate's 100-acre holdings. The personal touch of Antoine Vincent in the final blend makes this wine the representative example of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation.

The 2020 Pouilly-Fuissé Tête de Cuvée, a blend of the various soils from 40 parcels mainly around Fuissé is aged 60% in oak and 40% stainless steel, bottled during spring 2022. The less clayey soils and younger vines are those that are aged in stainless steel. It has a well- defined bouquet with touches of grilled walnut and honeysuckle, hints of white chocolate in the background. The palate is well balanced with a hints of dried honey and slate-like notes. Fine acidity, very well balanced with good substance, there is a lovely touch of spice towards the finish that lingers in the mouth. Try and keep a few of these in the cellar.

A delicate white, featuring peach and lemon flavors that mingle with toasty oak. Vivid acidity sets the pace as the spice and fruit notes intertwine through the finish. Drink now through 2028. 8,333 cases made, 1,000 cases imported.

(the fruit comes from 20 to 30-year-old vines situated in a variety of terroirs and is aged in 40% oak and 60% stainless). A restrained nose is ripe but cool with its fresh aromas of white peach, apple, tangerine and lemon-lime nuances. There is very good richness to the rich and generous medium-bodied flavors that deliver solid length on the saline-inflected, clean and dry finish. This delicious effort will need to develop better depth but historically this cuvée has done just that if given a chance. Drink: 2026+.

The nose has a lovely floral note and a ripe apple fruit touched with honey. It is a rich style, but it is balanced and very elegant, with a fleshy, powerful texture on the palate and impressive length.
