Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
Southeast-facing vineyards, over 20 years old. After a careful selection of grapes from small parcels in the region, they are pressed and undergo temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats (80% maloactic). Ten percent of the wine is aged in new French oak barrels for 8 months.


Interesting Fact
The four villages of Pouilly-Fuissé, Chaintré, Solutré, and Vergisson, produce the famous Pouilly-Fuissé wine. They have achieved the remarkable feat of selling 75% of their wine production abroad. The rocks of Solutré and Vergisson, which wine writer and entrepreneur, Alexis Lichine, compared to the rocks of Gibraltar, overlook the vineyards. This region is of great historical and prehistoric interest. In 1987, a prehistory museum was inaugurated in Solutré, where it was considered to be one of the major museums of its kind.
