Domaine de Fussiacus Bourgogne wine
When it comes to white Burgundy, it’s not that difficult to find good wines but with prices rising so quickly, finding good wines at reasonable prices has become much harder. Luckily, there are still a small number of family estates making some and we are here to find them!
Jean-Paul Paquet’s family started in 1971 with the Domaine Les Vieux Murs and have grown their estate with Domaine de Fussiacus in 1989 and Domaine du Château de Chaintré in 2003. They have now 22 hectares across the Mâconnais region, producing Mâcon, Saint-Véran, Pouilly-Vinzelles and Pouilly-Fuissé. We’ve said it quite a few times now; the Mâconnais is located in the South of Burgundy and produces mostly white wines of great quality. Pouilly-Fuissé being the top end of the range, where some cuvées can easily level some of the most prestigious Burgundy whites, like Meursault or Chassagne-Montrachet but for a much sweeter price!
From the "simple" Mâcon-Chaintré to a much more complex Pouilly-Fuissé Vieilles Vignes, all the wines get the most of the grapes and the terroir they come from. The care in the vineyard include manual harvest and wines are all vinified and aged in the beautiful cellar of the Domaine Les Vieux Murs, the historical estate of the Paquet family.
