    Wine Enthusiast:  "This wholly owned, single-walled vineyard is by the Chateau de Fuissé, home of the Vincent family.  From old vines, the wine is rich, concentrated and densely fruity.  It is also structured, spicy from aging in mainly new-wood barrels.  With acidity and crispness along with a steely texture, it will age.  Drink from late 2019."  Jun 2018

    Decanter:  "Salted pineapple and ripe Sicilian lemon fruit nose. The palate is crisp and multi-layered with evident oak, tension and long length."  Dec 2017

    Wine Spectator:  "This is opulent, with a smoky, toasty cast to the peach, lemon and stone flavors.  Tightens up midpalate, where the vibrant structure takes over.  Builds to a lingering aftertaste of lemon, spice and mineral.  Drink now through 2025."  Sep 2017 

    Vinous: "Palish bright yellow. Very rich, full-blown aromas of yellow peach, fresh apricot, spices, roasted nuts and minerals; this has the weight and salty minerality of a top Puligny wine. Plush, ripe and very concentrated, conveying an almost exotic orange oil and quince aspect to its yellow fruit and spicy oak flavors leavened by saline minerality. The most intense of these 2015s, with penetrating mineral-driven acidity carrying the finish. My favorite of the estate's '15s for its energy and concentration--and it may yet improve further with time in the cellar."   Nov 2017

    Winery:  "With the 1992 vintage Château Fuissé produced their single vineyard bottling from their Le Clos vineyard. This cuvée has become one of Pouilly-Fuissé’s top selection with age-ability of the famous wines of the Côte de Beaune.

    Château Fuissé Le Clos is barrel fermented and aged in the cool cellars below the chateau for 12 months. 80% of the barrels are new. The wine is then moved to the state-of-the-art winemaking facility for clarification and bottling. Quantities are limited to under 500 cases a year.

    Le Clos is extraordinarily rich with layer upon layer of ripe apple, pair, and spice. The finish is driven by mineral with a firm gripping acidity."
