On the hillsides, the Pouilly-Fuisse << Sous le Roche >> vineyard is located in the heart of a wonderful Mâconnais landscape. A serie of gentle hills covers the vineyard but as we move south, it becomes more marked finishing in rock-crowned masses. The top quality Chardonnay grapes of Pouilly-Fuisse are precisely harvested on these lofty slopes.
The village of Pouilly-Fuissé takes its name from the Roche de Solutre, a 493 meters rock known for its "chalk grassland", a soil made up of calcareous bedrock. The vineyard is located downhill from the rock. This situation highlights the richness of this appellation trough its minerality and its freshness.
