Pouilly-Fuissé Clos des Prouges

Region: France / Burgundy / Poully-Fuissé

This Clos is located in the heart of Fuissé. A 5 acre vineyard on a soft slope with east orientation, the soil contains limestone marls. A third of the vines were planted in 2006, a third in 1986 and a third in 1956. Fermentation and ageing took place in barrels: a third in new barrels, a third in one year old barrel and a third in 2 years old barrels over 9 months. Ageing is then finished in stainless steel tanks on lies over a 5 month span.

tasting note

Velvety and expressive, this Clos des Prouges develops aromas of fern and oak moss. It is rich in style, a characteristic of Fuissé wines. It has a remarkable mouth feel and roundness, an overall fleshy and juicy wine. Great ageing potential.
