Pale yellow in colour. This wine has an intense and aromatic bouquet of white peach and fig. Round and bright in the mouth with a lovely acidity and notes of fresh
hazelnuts on the finish. This is an elegant wine with impressive structure.
Already known to the Romans, Vinzelles takes its name from the latin vincella which means small vine. The distinctive feature of the village of Vinzelles is the presence of two ”chateaux” separated by just a few metres: a fortified castle from the 11th century and the other from the 13th and 17th centuries. From 50 hectares (122 acres) of essentially south, south-east facing vineyards, the appellation of Pouilly-Vinzelles encompasses the villages of Vinzelles and Loche. Continuing from the predominantly limestone slopes of Chaintre and Fuisse, the vineyards of Pouilly-Vinzelles are exclusively planted with Chardonnay and closely resemble those wines from its neighbour Pouilly-Fuisse.
