AT THE HEART OF A GREAT TERROIR DISCOVER
IT WOULD APPEAR THAT
Pouilly-Fuissé is one of the best white wines
Our Pouilly-Fuissé vines produce one of the best wines of the Mâconnais thanks to their terroir made up of marls rich in silica, shelly limestone (siliceous concretions) and crinoidal limestone (a type of limestone characterized by the presence of numerous marine fossils) with outcrop layers of sandstone, ideal for the expression of Chardonnay.
To make one of the best white wines in Burgundy
It means taking care of the vines, pruning them during winter months to regulate production of grapes, bending and tying down their branches to bring discipline to their growth.
In the spring it means eliminating unwanted shoots, selecting the best branches, then channelling growth and trimming it back in early summer. In this way, pampered vines will produce lovely bunches of golden grapes ready to be harvested.
