Chateau Fuisse’s Tete de Cru is a blend of over 20 prime vineyard sites throughout the appellation of Pouilly-Fuisse. Plots in Pouilly, with a high limestone proportion, contribute intense perfume yet more delicacy in the mouth. Those in Fuisse, where clay is more prominent, are less aromatic but fuller, more solid and structured. Vines are an average of 30 years old. Vinification: Each vineyard site is vinified separately until the final blend is chosen following aging. 70% of the wine is aged in oak barrel (25% new) while the remaining 30% is stored in stainless steel to retain it’s pure fruit.
