Fuées is one of the top premier cru of Chambolle-Musigny; it is an extension of the same slope as Bonnes Mares, which it borders to the southwest. In 1855, Musigny was the only tête de cuvée of Chambolle, and the Fuées, Bonnes Mares, Cras, Amoureuses and Véroilles vineyards were all declared premier cuvées at the time. Today there are 24 premier cru in Chambolle-Musigny, and Clive Coates offers that Fuées, Cras and Véroilles are “an area of premier cru second only to that of Amoureuses” (which borders Musigny).
