    Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "The 2012 Pouilly Fuissé Vieilles Vignes, whose vines date back to 1929 in the vineyard of "Le Clos" and is blended with "Vignes Blanche" and "Perrières," was cropped at 20 hectoliters per hectare and vinified in new oak.  It has a well-defined nose that assimilates with the new wood well (better than Le Clos) with scents of dried honey, quince, citrus peel, hazelnut and cumin.  The palate is well-balanced with crisp tannins, the oak well-integrated with a gradual build to a powerful saline, quite spicy finish that lingers long after the wine has departed.  Excellent."     Oct 2014

    Winery:  "Blended from 10 plots of vines, all over 30 years of age, with most planted in 1929, this is Château Fuisse’s ultimate cuvee, and the one intended to have the most longevity.  It’s incredibly rich and with subtle honey accents and notes of grilled nuts balanced by fresh peach and melon flavors.  Long on the finish."
