100% Chardonnay from vines with an average age of 30 years. Pouilly-Fuissé is the name of a village in the Mâconnais producing highly distinctive Chardonnay wine. The vineyards producing this wine are part of a breath-taking landscape where the limestone and heavy clay soils combine to create a unique 'terroir'.

temperature controlled stainless steel vats with complete malolactic fermentation. The wine ages for 

8–10 months in stainless steel vats.
