"JJ" Bourgogne Blanc is a tribute to Jean Jacques Vincent who has managed the family domaine of Chateau Fuisse for the past 40 years. It is a distinctive wine exclusively from the southern part of Burgundy near Mâcon and Pouilly Fuisse. The Mâconnais area offers naturally rich soils with a high proportion of clay which leads to a wine rich in mineral character.
Clean pale yellow color and green reflections. A nice brilliance. The nose is fresh and fruity, ripe and round with discrete vanilla and brioche scents. On the mouth, the wine is dense and rich, fresh and subtle with a good length and finesse. Overall, the wine is nicely balanced, fresh, elegant and with a long finish.
COMMENTARY: 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.
