Pouilly Fuissé Vieilles Vignes

50 years old

The vines are around the villages of Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly, Vergisson and Chaintré, in the Mâconnais, south of Burgundy. Soil : clay and limestone. The soil is composed of pebbles. Chardonnay. Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted when picking the grapes. They are lightly pressed then in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 500 liters (10% of new oak) for both of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts during 14 months.

Ageing on fine lees. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and lightly filtered before bottling it according to the lunar calendar ("fruit” day for Pouilly-Fuissé).

A delicate and distinguished wine, greeny-gold in colour. The local soils favour harmonious development of the Chardonnay aromas with notes of hazelnut, toasted almond and mineral notes.

Aperitif, fish, seafood and white meats.
