The grapes for this wine were grown on clay and limestone soils in the south of Burgundy. The old-vine vineyards here, planted in the late 1950s, are elevated at between 250m and 500m and provide this wine with both maturity and freshness. The grapes are hand-picked and gravity processed as whole bunches before cold (8°C) fermentation. Most of the wine (60%) is aged on lees in second and older-use oak barrels (Allier) for 15 months with some lees-stirring.
'This is high-end Pouilly-Fuissé, and the vineyards, which total 4.2 hectares, are ideally situated in the shadow of Roche du Solutre. The domaine was purchased in 2017 by the Parinet family of Château du Moulin-à-Vent. (The wines) are very fine expressions of white Burgundy, with lovely texture and mouthfeel.'
