Our Pouilly-Fuisse "Sous la Roche" 2018 reveals aromas of fruits and acacia on the nose. In the mouth, aromas of fresh fruits, especially citrus, come along with notes of honey on the finish. A rich and very well balanced wine.
On the hillsides, the Pouilly-Fuisse, Sous le Roche vineyard is located in the heart of a wonderful Maconnais landscape. A series 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-Fuisse 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 through its minerality and its freshness.

After a first pneumatic press step, both fermentation and ageing take place in stainless steels for 10 to 11 months. A complete malolactic fermentation is made, highlighting the freshness of the Pouilly-Fuisse appellation.
