Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes are grown in several parcels belonging to the two sisters of Jean Jacques Vincent. In addition, wines from the youngest vines of the Château-Fuissé itself — 5-15 year old vines — are blended into "Marie Antoinette". The wine is named in honor of Jean-Jacques's mother, Marie-Antoinette Vincent. The stony soils of the Vergisson vineyards give the wine refreshing acidity, elegance and a mineral undertone, while the clay soils in the Fuissé vineyards lend full bodied structure and a generous fruit character. The wine is vinified in small oak barrels by Jean-Jacques Vincent, owner of Château Fuissé, who blends the different origins to make a delicious, well-balanced Pouilly Fuisse.

The wine has white flower aromas and round, fresh, mineral flavors on the palate, with a clean and balanced character. Pairs well with fish, seafood, chicken and goat's milk cheeses.

About J.J. Vincent:

Maison JJ Vincent produces a range of wines made with the same care and expertise as those made at the Vincent's historic domaine, Château Fuissé. Made from grapes sourced from Mâconnais and cru Beaujolais vineyards owned by other members of Jean-Jacques Vincent’s family, these wines are of extremely high quality. Maison JJ Vincent wines are both lovely and approachable wines for immediate consumption and a great introduction to the Château Fuissé realm of great wines.
