Terroir: 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
This is a great example of the true potential of the wines of Pouilly-Fuissé and a great introduction to the wines of Chateau Fuissé. The wine is rich and robust in the mouth, but retains it's lean acidity and freshness throughout.
