Work in the Vines
The vines are regularly tilled to oxygenate the ground, pruning is short, organic philosophy: No use of chemical fertilizer nor insecticide, nor weed-killer.

Natural. Immediate destemming and immediate press after harvest to avoid skin contact or oxidation. Very gentle press in our pneumatic press, fermentation in stainless steel tanks after cold settling, long conservation on very fine lees to enhance texture and youth character, no malolactic fermentation.

Up to 4 years, apogee in the 2nd and 3rd year

Wine-Master’s Advice
Served chilled at 12°C. It is ideal alone as an aperitif. It is the perfect match with seafood, all fishes (raw, cooked, grilled or smoked) but also with poultry or white meats. It is also great with cheeses, particularly goat cheeses.

Tasting Notes
An excellent example of a rich white Sancerre, made from Sauvignon Blanc. Crisp, elegant, versatile and well-structured straight Sauvignon Blanc from this dedicated grower in the heart of the Loire’s Central Vineyards.

Winemaking by Soil
There are three different soils on the AOC Pouilly-Fumé area: Kimmeridgean marls, limestone and flint. Since we have got vines on these 3 different soils, we have chosen (for more than 35 years now) to vinify them separately to get the best expression of each soil. Pouilly-Fumé “Les Angelots” is made on Portlandian limestone soils. Pouilly-Fumé “Villa Paulus” is made on Kimmeridgean marls and Pouilly-Fumé “Les Pierres de Pierre” comes from our flinty soils. Their maturation in stainless steel tanks allows us to compare the expression of the Terroir every year; Pouilly-Fumé ‘Tradition Cullus’(a tribute to Michelle’s great grand father) is made from our eldest vines (from 50 to 60 years old) and vinified in new oak 600 litres barrels. They are planted on Kimmeridgean marls. Our vines in Sancerre, located in the village of Thauvenay, are planted on limestone and flinty soils. Finally, our Chasselas’ vines, through our cuvée ‘Pouilly-sur-Loire’, are planted on marls.
