The estate now owns 4 ha of vines across the villages of Solutré-Pouilly and Prissé and produces the appellations Pouilly Fuissé, Saint and Mâcon Prissé blanc.

Since it was set up in November 2000, the winery tries to emphasise in the wines the expression of the rich and complex nature of the association of Chardonnay and the “Terroirs” of the Mâconnais. It is with this aim that the winery has adapted new work methods, both on the vines and in the cellar, to obtain wines which best express the qualities specific to each plot. By using environmentally-friendly practices, only treatments which are essential for the health of the vine are applied.

Cover planting, mechanical and chemical weeding for those plots which cannot be mechanised as well as the most suitable method of pruning and selective suppression of secondary buds, all aim to voluntarily limit yields.

Temperature control and slow fermentations, followed by ageing on lees are the last stages to finalise the expression of the qualities of each plot, already developed by the work carried out on the vine. The result is fresh and fruity wines which you are welcome to come and discover in the cellar.
