Jean-Jacquws Vincent’s sister owns the vines for this Vincent Pouilly-Fuissé Marie-Antoinette but, although they are not the property of Château-Fuissé, the wines are fashioned with exactly the same level of care and expertise.
Around 25% of the wine sees a little oak ageing to add structure, but this is really a wine designed for drinking in its youthful prime and it is a beautiful introduction to the appellation.
Vincent Pouilly-Fuissé Marie-Antoinette is a tribute to Jean-Jacques’ mother, Marie-Antoinette Vincent.
It is a pale yellow colour with hints of green. A touch of vanilla oak on the nose, with white blossom, lemon, apple and mineral scents. The palate is round and fruity with flavours of melon, kiwi, peach and apple, a youthful acidity and again a lovely note of minerality. Overall, the wine is nicely balanced and fresh with a great length.
