The Chateau de Fuissé 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-Fuissé appellation with other holdings in St-Véran and the Mâcon.
When I am looking for a Chardonnay, I always scan the field of Bourgogne Blanc in the marketplace. The 2017 J.J. Vincent is an excellent example of this genre. TASTING NOTES: This wine is fresh, vibrant, and crisp. Its aromas and flavors of ripe apples and perky minerality should pair it nicely with simply prepared shellfish.

Hailing from Burgundy, the "JJ" Bourgogne Blanc 2017 experiences warmer summer temperatures, resulting in a ripe fruit character and soft acidity with scents of vanilla and brioche. Rachel King; Fortune Magazine
Jean-Jacques Vincent’s family estate is the source of excellent chardonnay under the Chateau Fuissé label. It’s one of southern Burgundy’s best wines, and the winery’s entry-level drop, called simply Bourgogne Blanc, shares similar high-quality standards. The 2017 is pale yellow and bright in colour, with inviting aromas and flavours reminiscent of melon, white stone fruits, malt and a suggestion of spicy oak. It’s intensely flavoured yet not heavy, with good line and length ahead of a clean, tangy finish. A satisfying taste of good white burgundy at a great price.
