ABOUT THIS WINE

From the Producer: "The Pouilly-Vinzelles controlled appellation is only 50 ha compared to the 750 ha of the adjoining Pouilly-Fuissé AOC. But isn’t that its singularity and its richness? This great white wine from Burgundy expresses the full maturity of Chardonnay from South Mâconnais. Thus our wine is a selection of our “youngest vines” (33 to 50 years old) located in the “Les Quarts” Climat which we “fold” into Pouilly-Vinzelles La Soufrandière AOC Communale. All are magnificently south-east facing, in the middle of a clay-limestone hillside. The soils are plowed and all the work in the vineyard is carried out by hand so as not to compact the soil, which therefore lives without artifice. The term “Terroir” then takes on its full dimension." Manual harvest, pressing in whole bunches, 70% vinified and aged for 11 months in stainless steel vats and 30% in pieces (228 l used barrels).

All our vines aged 33 to 80 years and over are magnificently located, East, South-East, in the middle and at the top of the hillside, made of very red clay and limestone known as “entroques”, dating back more than 180 million years. 'years.

Since the 2016 campaign, we have been fortunate to be able to farm around 5 additional hectares, already certified organic. Since the 2016 harvest, La Soufrandière has been able to offer you Saint-Véran 'La Bonnode' (3.5 ha), Pouilly-Fuissé 'Les Chatenays' (0.70 ha) on Vergisson, Pouilly-Fuissé 'Les Vigneraies' » (0.50 ha) on the side of the Roche de Solutré, and even a little Aligoté (0.30) ha. We chose Organic and Biodynamic Agriculture when we took over the estate in 2000. This agriculture that simply respects life, which does not use any herbicides or synthetic pesticides , seems to us to be the only way to produce exceptional wines. balance, vibrant and revealing of the terroir.
