Overview

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).

Winery Profile

The property is 6.5 ha with the oldest vines being planted in 1910; harvest is done carefully and by hand. The farm is certified as organic and as such all viticulture is practiced with the aim to produce natural grapes of the highest quality. The soils are clay and limestone for the silky fine Clos Varambon and granite for the rich Pierrefolle. Fermentation takes place with natural yeasts only in temperature controlled oak vats. Maturation is on fine lees in oak barrels ranging from 10 to 24 months. After a long period on lees, the wines are racked then bottled without filtration.

This is pure, pristine white Burgundy.
