Origin

Yannick owns four hectares of vines in Pouilly-Fuissé. The vines are 35 years old on average and are planted at 200-300 metres above sea level. The south and south-west exposure on the limestone and clay soils give the wine the ripeness and weight that is characteristic of Pouilly-Fuissé. The family practises sustainable viticulture and annually applies organic fertiliser to every plot dependent on need. Meticulous leaf plucking to increase airflow and exposure to sunlight is employed to combat fungal diseases instead of using sprays.

Grape Variety

100% Chardonnay

The 2018 growing season began with a wet spring which provided adequate groundwater reserves and caused earlier than normal flowering. This was followed by a hot, dry summer. The grapes harvested were of a good quality and with relatively high yields.
