Wine Advocate-Parker :
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.
