"The stone walls of Le Clos, a wholly owned vineyard ( monopole) surround the Château de Fuissé itself. The “ vieilles vignes “ or “ old vines ( more 50 years ) of this exceptional parcel express the perfect harmony of the three soil-types present within the vineyard, giving complexity this great White Burgundy Wine." - winemaker
"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. 100 cases imported." - BS, Wine Spectator

"The 2015 Pouilly Fuisse le Clos is the only bona fide walled vineyard (2.69 hectares) in Fuissé 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 cuvée from Château Fuissé this year." - Neal Martin, Wine Advocate

"(13.8% alcohol; from 28- and 50-year-old vines): Full yellow with a green tinge. Very ripe scents of white stone fruits and orange zest show little in the way of exotic character. Then tight and stony in the mouth, conveying more calcaire energy than the nose suggests. Dense and concentrated without being heavy, with a firm spine of acidity running through the wine from entry to aftertaste. This firmly structured, even youthfully strict 2015 will need a few years in bottle to put on weight and blossom." - Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
