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
The Clos Varambon is made in wooden vats and barrels without new oak. The grapes are from Clos, the oldest vineyard of ours. The vines are between 15 to 50 years old.
This cuvée is meant to be appreciated from its early age: this is why it is vinified mostly in large volumes and without new oak, in order to take all the advantages of wood while preserving a more immediate and direct expression of fruit.
The wine can age easily from 6 to 10 years: The aromatic palate will evolve from white flowers and fresh yellow pulp fruits to dry fruits, encaustic and spices.
