Appellation: Pouilly-Fuisse A.C., Macon, Bourgogne
Pouilly-Fuissé is the important white wine appellation in the Mâconnais district of Southern Burgundy. Being on top of a hill means that the only water to pass through the vineyards comes from above; purity is the hallmark of Château des Rontets. Fabio and Claire exchanged their city lives as architects and returned to the family home to become farmers; Château des Rontets has been in Claire’s family since 1850.

Winery Tasting Notes
Unlike the vineyards in the Clos, this plot is set on a granitical subsoil and exposed plain East. These characteristics produce wines with a lower acid thread, but with a nice minerality and a very seductive amplitude.
Citrus aromas are quite typical of –Pierrefolle-, and they often come together with exotic notes, due to the fairly high percentage of "Chardonnay Musucaté" (a sub-variety of Chardonnay).
