Château-Fuissé Pouilly-Fuissé Tête De Cru 2018 Magnum
Chateau-Fuisse Pouilly-Fuisse Tete De Cru 2018 Magnum has a nose that is tightly coiled with subtly smokey, leesy aromas infused with acacia and lemon zest. The palate is well-balanced with ripe fruit, a gentle nuttiness and a fine thread of acidity; the clay soils lend the power and thrust on the spice-tinged finish which retains a wonderful elegance.

Château-Fuissé Pouilly-Fuissé Tête De Cru is a blend of 20 wines grown on 40 different plots of clay-limestone soils. Plots in Pouilly, with a high limestone content in the soil, contribute intense perfume yet more delicacy in the mouth. Those in Fuissé, where clay is more prominent, are less aromatic but fuller, more solid and structured. The average age of the vines is 30 years and 30% is fermented in stainless steel tanks, the rest in barrels. Depending upon the vintage, 20-30% of the barrels are new.
