ABOUT THIS WINE:
Grapes are harvested at optimum maturity and then go through a gentle pneumatic press. The wine is then vinified in stainless steel tanks before the juice undergoes partial malolactic fermentation. The wine is then aged in stainless steel tanks before bottling.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:
Created in 1936, the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation takes in the four villages of Solutré-Pouilly, Fuissé, Vergisson and Chaitré. The vineyard's sub-soil is composed of clay-limestone of Jurassic maritime origin.
This wine is produced by the ‘Cave des Grands Crus Blancs’ which is a group of growers established in 1929 by the merging of two groups from Vinzelles and Loché. Today this cooperative owns over 330 acres of vineyards in the Mâconnais comprising the appellations of Macon Loché, Macon Vinzelles, Macon Chaintré, Pouilly Loché and Pouilly Vinzelles. It has built up a strong reputation in the area and most of its production is sold on the premises.
