The meaning of the word "Clos" in Burgundy has always been linked to an ancestral vineyard, surrounded on at least three sides by dry stone walls built from rocks brought to the surface by the passing of countless seasons. The Château-Fuissé Le Clos vineyard covers an area of 2.7 hectares and it surrounds the château and winery. This wholly owned single vineyard has been part of the domaine since its acquisition by the Vincent family in 1862.

Within Le Clos there are 3 distinct areas linked to the geology and to the age of the vines. The soil of lower slope is mainly clay thanks to erosion higher up, whereas the soils of the middle and upper slopes are dominated by small stones called "chailles", small calcareous stones consisting of flint and clay. The oldest vines are situated mid-slope, having been planted in 1929. The Château-Fuissé Pouilly-Fuissé Le Clos realises a natural synthesis between richness, ripeness and the finesse of mineral complexity.

Château-Fuissé Le Clos is a barrel fermented Pouilly-Fuissé, aged in the cool cellars below the château for 12 months. 80% of the barrels are new, 10% are one year old and 10% are two years old. Quantities are limited, under 500 cases are produced each year.

Château de Fuissé/Vincent(富塞酒莊/文森)是一座擁有五角尖塔的城堡,建立於1604年。文森(Vincent)家族於1862年入主至今已屆五代,默默守護著附近超過30公頃的葡萄園。現任莊主Antoine Vincent同時也是釀酒師,將祖傳葡萄園不同的Terroir風貌展現出來。

布根地眾多白酒產區裡,品質優異還沒被拉抬的就屬馬貢區了。這裡除了伯恩丘區的明星酒莊如Leflaive與Comtes Lafon陸續到此拓展新的葡萄園之外,許多了歷史老酒莊也不容小覷,其中最出名的就屬Château de Fuissé酒莊。葡萄園分屬四個法定產區:Pouilly-Fuissé 23公頃、Saint-Véran 7. 5公頃、Mâcon-Villages 1.7公頃及Mâcon-Fuissé的0.9公頃。其優秀的夏多內白酒產自絕佳的石灰質黏土,自古以來就是Pouilly-Fuissé產區的最佳代言人,聞名於國際。

從1985年開始,文森家也整合了家族其他成員的葡萄園,以J.J. Vincent&Files這個品牌出產一系列的布根地南部產區葡萄酒,同時也加入氣泡酒Crémant de Bourgogne以及兩個薄酒來優級村莊(Crus de Beaujolais)- Morgon與Juliénas紅酒,使得產品陣容更為強大而完整。
