Country: France, Burgundy, Pouilly Fuisse
Grape Varieties: Chardonnay 100%
"JJ" Bourgogne Blanc is a tribute to Jean Jacques Vincent who has managged the family domaine 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.

Limestone, clay, sand

Tasting Notes:
 Clean pale yellow colour and green reflections. A nice brilliance. The nose is fresh and fruity, ripe and round, with discrete vanilla and brioche scents. On the mouth, the wine is dense and rich, fresh and subtle with a good length and finesse. Overall, the wine is nicely balanced, fresh, elegant and with a long finish.

Chateau de Fuisse
The Chateau de Fuisse is rich in history with the house dating back to the mid-15th century having been run by the Vincent family since 1882. The estate owns 32 hectares of vines, two-thirds within the Pouilly-Fuisse appellation with other holdings in St-Veran and the Mâcon. The limestone and clay soils of Pouilly-Fuisse are perfectly suited to the Chardonnay grape and the domaine`s holdings cover 104 plots, giving great diversity to the final wines which display great expression, concentration and minerality. The old vines of their Pouilly-Fuisse Le Clos is the pinnacle of their offerings and the quality is excellent across the range and provides great value.

Famille Vincent produces a range of wines made with the same care and expertise as those made at Vincent’s historic Domaine, Château Fuissé. Made primarily from grapes sourced from Mâconnais vineyards owned by members of Antoine Vincent’s family, these wines are of extremely high quality and represent remarkable value. Famille Vincent wines are both lovely and approachable wines for immediate consumption and a great introduction to the Château Fuissé range of great wines.

The Grape
Chardonnay is the "Big Daddy" of white wine grapes and one of the most widely planted in the world. It is suited to a wide variety of soils, though it excels in soils with a high limestone content as found in Champagne, Chablis, and the Côte D`Or.

Burgundy is Chardonnay`s spiritual home and the best White Burgundies are dry, rich, honeyed wines with marvelous poise, elegance and balance. They are unquestionably the finest dry white wines in the world. Chardonnay plays a crucial role in the Champagne blend, providing structure and finesse, and is the sole grape in Blanc de Blancs.

It is quantitatively important in California and Australia, is widely planted in Chile and South Africa, and is the second most widely planted grape in New Zealand. In warm climates Chardonnay has a tendency to develop very high sugar levels during the final stages of ripening and this can occur at the expense of acidity. Late picking is a common problem and can result in blowsy and flabby wines that lack structure and definition.

Recently in the New World, we have seen a move towards more elegant, better- balanced and less oak-driven Chardonnays, and this is to be welcomed.
