Jean-Paul and Monique Paquet set up their eight-hectare estate above the village of Fuissé in 1989, and are delighted that their enthusiasm has passed to their son, Yannick, who joined the family business in 2005 after studying viticulture and oenology.
The wines show fabulous concentration and texture, thanks to the Paquets’ know-how and painstaking work in both the vineyard and the cellar.
This, their Macon-Fuisse, delivers a very close it to a Pouilly-Fuissé at a markedly lower cost.
Produced in the traditional Burgundy style,with entirely manual grape harvesting and pneumatic pressing techniques. Elevage is conducted in thermo-regulated stainless steel tanks. Yeasts are naturally occurring to maximise the flavours of the terroir.
White Burgundy with a ripe green apple note on the nose, baked apple flavours and a hint of spice. This is a leaner, more Chablis-like Fuissé than some.
