« Les Vignes du Château » 2016

The historical Pouilly-Fuissé

The cuvée

Pouilly-Fuissé ‘Les Vignes du Château’ is a blend of grapes from Château Vitallis’ historic 13th-century plots. The vines, with an average age of 35 years, are planted on clay-limestone Jurassic soils, and bring richness to the wine.

Traditional vinification lasts 11 to 12 months and takes place in 30% oak barrels and 70% temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats. This subtle combination gives the wine great aromatic intensity.

Tasting

The 2016 Pouilly-Fuissé ‘Les Vignes du Château’ is a bright, pale gold. It is very open on the nose and expresses notes of hawthorn, acacia blossom and citrus fruit, entwined with a light touch of spice.

The attack is crisp, with good acidity, but this develops gradually to give the impression of fullness. It shows pronounced notes of candied citrus fruit and a zesty mineral finish.

Sommelier’s
recommendation

Pouilly-Fuissé ‘Les Vignes du Château’ is best served at 10-12°C.  It makes a perfect aperitif wine, but also pairs well with shellfish and fish, as well as white meats in a creamy sauce.
