Wine maker notes
”JJ” Bourgogne Blanc is a tribute to Jean Jacques Vincent who has managed the family domaine of Chateau Fuisse for the past 40 years. It is a distinctive wine exclusively from the southern part of Burgundy near Macon and Pouilly Fuisse. The Maconnais area offers naturally rich soils with a high proportion of clay which leads to a wine rich in mineral character. Summer temperatures are generally higher in the Macon than than in northern Burgundy, affording the wines rich and ripe fruit character and soft acidity. The full maturity of the skins adds an extra dimension to the grapes, a ripe exotic character, with hints of brioche. To preserve the fresh fruit characters, 70% of the wine is vinified in stainless steel tanks with the remainder sees about 6 months in oak barrels.

Chateau Fuisse has defined the Pouilly-Fuisse appellation; as important to the understanding of Burgundy as Chablis. Chateau Fuisse dates back to 1604 and has been in the Vincent family for five generations. Each generation has added land, increased quality and enhanced the worldwide recognition of the chateau and today under direction of Jean-Jacques Vincent and his son Antoine Chateau Fuisse has reached the pinnacle of quality in the region with wines rivaling the more famous appellations of Puligny Montrachet, Chassagne Montrachet and Meursault to the north. The chateau owns more than 80 acres, each planted with Chardonnay covering four appellations in Pouilly-Fuisse, Saint Veran, Macon-Villages and Macon-Fuisse. The most famous vineyards of Les Brulees, Les Combettes and Le Clos surround the chateau are bottled as specific cuvees to showcase their unique terroir. Chateau Fuisse also produces quality driven wines sourced mainly from family-owned properties in the Macon and Beaujolais under the Vincent Signature label. Each of these wines is produced with the same care and expertise as the domaine bottlings.
