Domaine du Chalet Pouilly practices viticulture methods that focus on an utmost respect for terroir. Minimal intervention during the ripening process is often challenging but rewarding at the same time, as it sets off the development of the unique flavors and aromas of these wines.
The estate produces Chardonnay from the appellations of Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran, and Mâcon-Solutré.
All wines are produced and bottled at the estate
Pouilly-Fuissé matures in 400-600 liter French oak barrels for 12 to 20 months, depending on vintage
Out of total barrel supply, 12-16% new oak is introduced annually
Saint-Véran and Mâcon-Solutré mature in thermoregulated tanks at 18°C for 8 to 10 months, depending on vintage
Naturally occuring yeast is used for fermentation (a carefully selected yeast from Burgundy is added in rare cases when levels of natural yeast are not sufficient due to weather conditions)
Low residual sugar
Minimal use of sulfites
Natural vintage-marked cork added at bottling
HVE (High Environmental Value) certification - ongoing
A dry 100% Chardonnay with a golden color and green glints that brings a mineral bouquet of nice floral touches. A great presence in mouth is reinforced by fullness, power, and coolness that perfectly harmonize. The flavors are often on the floral tone of hawthorn with a hint of fresh hazelnuts.
Matured in French oak barrels for a period which varies from 15 to 20 months depending on the vintage.
Served chilled (14°C). This wine can be enjoyed as an appetiser. Pouilly-Fuissé goes well with seafood (grilled lobster), fish (pikeperch, salmon, saint-pierre, sole and more), white meats (roasted pork), poultry (chicken in salted crust) and cheeses (saint-nectaire, charolle, comté and more).
This wine should be kept in a cool place and, depending on the vintage, can be aged from 5 to 10 years.
