Château-Fuissé has a long history, with parts of the main house dating back to the 15th century. The estate has been owned by the Vincent family since 1862, with fifth generation winemaker Antoine Vincent now leading its production. He is assisted by his sister Benedicte and his father, Jean- Jacques Vincent, who still keeps a watchful eye over him. Château-Fuissé comprises more than 40 hectares of vineyards, 25 of which are in Pouilly- Fuissé spread across more than 100 plots. They hold additional plots in Saint-Véran, Mâcon-Villages, Mâcon-Fuissé, Bourgogne-Blanc, and Juliénas.

The temperate climate and the limestone and clay soils of the Mâconnais are ideally suited to Chardonnay, allowing it to express a lovely balance of ripeness, concentration and minerality. Their unoaked Mâcon-Fuissé has great freshness. In contrast, the Pouilly-Fuissé Le Clos is richer due to the large use of new oak, but still retains its freshness and a mineral-driven finish.
