"A fleshy style, with grapefruit, peach and spice notes coursing throughout the rich texture. Bright acidity adds definition and drives the lingering finish. Drink now through 2018. 5,000 cases imported." (WS)

"A discreet hint of wood frames fresh and ripe aromas of pear and white peach that introduce invitingly textured and relatively dense middle weight flavors that possess good mid-palate concentration as well as a mineral-infused, dry and lemony finish." (BH)

"From the Vincent family of Chteau de Fuisse, this is a ripe wine, with its green plum and nectarine fruits giving it roundness. At the same time, there is a bright, attractive edge of crispness, with a citrusy finish." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Summary:
The JJ Vincent Pouilly-Fuissé Cuvèe Marie Antoinette is a tribute to Jean Jacques Vincents mother; Marie Antoinette Vincent. The wine is sourced from several parcels including young vines from the Chateau Fuissé vineyards of Le Clos, Les Brules and Le Combettes as well as several non-domaine yet family owned parcels throughout the appellation.

Cuvèe Marie Antoinette is created with a fresh, youthful profile in mind. The grapes are vinified in stainless steel tank with only about 25% of the total blend seeing any time in oak. The resulting wine is pleasing, refreshing and crisp on the palate.

Notes:
The 2010 Cuvee Marie Antoinette is clean and pure showing youthful layers of acidity, apple, peach and vanilla. Great as an aperitif or with a variety of seafoods or game.
