Our Private Sales team have gone out to the vineyards of Burgundy, to taste the Burgundy 2022 wines ahead of the next en primeur campaign. On their final day, they pay a visit to Château Fuissé.
“The 2022 vintage is, in a word, superb.“
To wrap up our final day in Burgundy we took a scenic road trip down to the Mâcon to visit a very special winery indeed – Château Fuissé.
Arriving bright and early, we approached the 15th century Château, situated in the heart of Pouilly-Fuissé, with the sun just beginning to warm the golden slopes surrounding us.
We were greeted by Philip, brother in law to 5th generation winemaker Antoine Vincent, whose family have owned the Château since 1862. Even the vineyards boast his family’s history or as Philip said “the family chronology – vines planted by Grandfathers, Fathers and the new generations flow down the slopes”
Inside the Château we tasted 2022s side by side with some of the previous vintages and were blown away with how elegant and approachable the wines are already. The signature Tête de Cuvée is always a crowd pleaser, but this year it was really singing in the glass.
To finish the day we headed down further into the Mâcon to see a very exciting new project by one of the most esteemed winemakers in the region. The visit was a Jeroboams exclusive – not even family members have been allowed access yet. More to be revealed soon…
Overall, I can wholeheartedly attest that the whole team are now returning to London with massive smiles on our faces. The 2022 vintage is, in a word, superb. Lovers of Burgundy can breathe a sigh of relief – with more wine to go around than there has been in years, and a higher quality than ever – it truly is the vintage to stock up on!
