Perched on the high slopes of the roche de Vergisson, this place called "On The Rock" is a unique terroir that is affirmed by its high altitude and especially by a soil formed of white stones extremely calcareous.
Considered as one of the best plots of Pouilly-Fuissé, it helps give focus, colour and material while allowing the wine to keep of nervousness. This is particularly the case here with old vines aged more than 50 years.
The wine making and thebreeding in barrels of oak are examples of rigor, precision, and patience, to bring the matter and aromatic complements to it without losing the wine. The ageing lasts 12 months with 15% new oak.
This Pouilly Fuissé 2018 is a wine of character, very pure, fine and with a very nice minerality. It expresses on the nose a complex bouquet of fruit : fresh lemon, exotic fruits, fish... In the mouth, a sharp attack that leaves quickly the way to a nice roundness and above all a concentration of aromatic incredible. The finish is smooth and elegant, long in the mouth remarkable.
