Sipping Fine Wine

A 15th Century tower flanks Chateau Fuisse, a family home whose history is evidenced by a number of 300 year old artifacts and adornment. From a blend of over 20 vineyards, and about 70% sat on oak for 20 months (25% new), the remaining 30% in stainless steel tanks. Aromas of sweet stone fruits with some floral spice notes. On the palate apple and peach flavors with a wet stone character. Lingering finish, well balanced ending fresh and crisp with mineral edge.

Needs some time to relax but this has great character and great bones. 6 months to a year should help. #chateaufuisse #pouillyfuisse #mâconnais #chardonnay #burgundy #ctbucklinwine

Un des meilleurs Chardonnay que j'ai goûté dans ma jeune vie. Beaucoup de chêne, une touche subtile de beurre avec une finale généreuse qui laisse un goût d'amande en bouche. ÇA COCHE.

Buttery but light oak. Stone fruit. Long finish. Nick Murrieta needs on this beast if he likes an oaky mistress
