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-Fume « Les Angelots » is made on Portlandian limestone soils.
Pouilly-Fume « Villa Paulus » is made on Kimmeridgean marls.
Pouilly-Fume « 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-Fume ‘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.
