The Château-Fuissé "Le Clos" covers a surface of 2,7 Ha (6,75 Acres) and surrounds the Château and winery. The meaning of the word "Clos" in Burgundy has always been linked to an ancestral property surrounded by at least three walls build from the dry-stones brought to the surface by the culture of the soil. The oldest vines are situated in the mid slope and were planted in 1929. The Pouilly-Fuissé "Le Clos" reaches a natural balance between richness, ripeness and the finesse of mineral complexity.
The 2015 Pouilly-Fuisse Le Clos displays a pale yellow color with hints of green and a nice brilliance. Crisp on the nose, ripe and powerful, with aromas of toasted bread, fresh almonds and hints of fresh butter. The wine shows lots of finesse and elegance, white flowers and some mineral. On the palate, the wine is dense and concentrated, powerful with the beautiful complexity of the vintage. Ripe and crisp. The finish is long, rich and elegant at the time.
This is opulent, with a smoky, toasty cast to the peach, lemon and stone flavors. Tightens up midpalate, where the vibrant structure takes over. Builds to a lingering aftertaste of lemon, spice and mineral. Drink now through 2025.
The 2015 Pouilly Fuisse le Clos is the only bona fide walled vineyard (2.69 hectares) in Fuisse that contains a variety of soils ranging from deep clay at the bottom, marne in the mid-slope and limestone at the top. The vines range from 40 to 87 years old and have been blended together since the 2014 vintage. Le Clos is matured in around 75% new oak; one-year-old barrels are employed for the limestone soils. It has a very fine bouquet, with hints of wild honey, quince, marmalade and a touch of apricot conserve that gains intensity with continued aeration. The palate is well balanced with a brisk, lightly spiced entry, just a tang originating from a seam of orange rind, with a potent nutmeg and hazelnut-driven finish that is very harmonious. Clearly the standout cuvee from Château Fuisse this year.
