Marcel Couturier Pouilly-Fuissé Clos Reyssié 2015

Marcel owns 0.5ha in the famed Clos Reyssié vineyard in the village of Chaintré, one of four villages which comprise Pouilly-Fuissé. His family has an intimate relationship with this vineyard, beginning with his great-grandfather having drawn the map for original boundaries of Clos Reyssié. One of just 12 producers in Clos Reyssié, his parcel is towards the lower part of the slope, which is beneficial, as a lot of the heavier clay elements get washed from the top. Heavy clay with a vein of limestone running throughout, this vineyard gives incredibly complex, opulent wines which are deeply satisfying.
