    Winery:  "Château Fuissé’s Téte de Cru is a blend of over 20 prime vineyard sites throughout the appellation of Pouilly-Fuissé. Plots in Pouilly, with a high limestone proportion, 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. Vines are an average of 30 years old.

    Each vineyard site is vinified separately until the final blend is chosen following aging. 60% of the wine is aged in oak barrel (25% new) while the remaining 40% is stored in stainless steel to retain it’s pure fruit.

    Color:  Light pale yellow color with hints of green, nice and clear.

    Nose:  Crisp and ripe, citrus, apples and lemon, almonds and smoked hazelnuts. Hints of mineral and good freshness.

    Mouthfeel:  Fresh and forward, nice richness to the mid-palate, very classic in its definition.  Lots of ripe fruits, almonds, some delicate oak, and a light smokiness.

    Harmony:  A complete wine with nice mineral and roundness. Good intensity, fresh with a nice volume."
