Winemaker's Notes

The pale yellow wine has a brilliant color with a green tint, and elegant, white flower aromas which lead to round, fresh, mineral flavors on the palate. The wine has a very clean and balanced character in the mouth. The wine pairs well with fish, seafood, chicken and goat's milk cheeses.

Matches best with soft cheeses, scallops, salmon, salads, fish, chicken and Antipasto.

89 Points

"This tasty white is fresh and round, sporting apple, melon and honey aromas and flavors. There's just a hint of oak influence and a mineral accent on the finish."
Wine Spectator

89 Points

"Toasty whole-wheat scents and fresh vanilla bean flavors cast a leesy note on the soft peach flavors of this wine. It's creamy and simple. For roast chicken."

"While under-$25 Pouilly-Fuisse of any quality may soon be a thing of the past, the Vincent family's 2006 Pouilly-Fuisse Propriete Marie-Antoinette Vincent – far less expensive than their excellent and esteemed bottlings under the "Chateau de Fuisse" label – remains just such a bargain. Melon, apple, and grapefruit mingle on the nose and palate, and a combination of bright citricity and chalky, stony nuances reminds one that this is from high-elevation Vergisson terroir. Very polished in texture, with a hint of creaminess, the wine finishes with a lovely balance of honeyed richness, citrus brightness, and mineral persistence." Robert Parker, Jr.,
Wine Advocate

87 Points

"A blend of young vines fruit gives a very soft, gently rounded wine with only the lightest of depth. The fruit is full, the flavors show some spice, while yellow fruit tastes roll around underneath."

Learn About Marcel Vincent & Fils

The firm of Marcel Vincent & Fils, producer of Chateau Fuisse, was founded in 1864. Current winemaker Jean-Jacques Vincent, great-grandson of the founder, is as alert to modern innovations as he is loyal to proven traditional methods. Serena Sutcliffe, MW has described him as "one of the most brilliant makers of white Burgundy". The artisanal "Selections" that bear his name are made with fruit (never juice) purchased from a small number of growers with whom he has long-term relationships. The wine is vinified in much the same way as his own estate wines.
