Chateau Fuisse Macon Fuisse 2018
This little gem is born in the village of Fuisse of Pouilly Fuisse fame where limestone clay soils are the perfect place to grow Chardonnay. The wine has a golden colour with greenish highlights, an elegant and very fine nose with great freshness and some mineral notes below. In the mouth the freshness is evident once again with a great clip of acidity in the finish. A superb win that was built for food especially shellfish or poultry.

After hand harvesting, the grapes are gently pressed and then the resulting juice is fermented in stainless steel tanks that are temperature controlled. The yeasts are natural and in the following maturation the fine lees are subjected to batonnage to keep them in suspension thus adding some richness to the final wine. Some malolactic fermentation is permitted depending on the vintage.
Best served around 11 degrees C. This should age for a further 3 years.
