Mâcon-Fuissé 2017

The elegant Mâcon wine

The cuvée

At the heart of the Pouilly-Fuissé plots, the vines for Mâcon-Fuissé wine make the most of their terroir and clay-limestone soils. This is an ideal soil composition which allows these 25-year-old Chardonnay vines to produce a unique, elegant and distinctively Mâconnais wine.

True to form, this 2017 vintage Mâcon-Fuissé is characterised by freshness, finesse and precision.

To preserve this typicity, the wine is vinified using traditional methods for only 6 months, on its fine lies and in temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats.

Tasting

The 2017 Mâcon-Fuissé is notable for its bright yellow-gold hue with green highlights. The nose is very intense with aromas reminiscent of pepper, yellow flowers and mirabelles.

The attack shows pronounced ripe fruit flavours, before giving way to a smooth mid-palate with hints of pineapple and plum.

Sommelier’s
recommendation

This Mâcon-Fuissé should be served at between 10-12°C and will keep for 2 to 5 years. It makes a perfect aperitif wine, but also pairs nicely with shellfish, antipasti, cold meats, fish and goat’s cheeses.
