Pouilly-Fuissé Autour de la Roche

Region: France / Burgundy / Poully-Fuissé

Autour de la Roche is a blend of only the best terroirs surrounding the Roche de Vergisson. With an excellent south-southeast exposure, 10-35 year old vines are planted in calcareous (limestone) clay soil which imparts finesse, complexity and volume to the wine. For the classic Pouilly-Fuisse, fermentation takes place half in enameled tanks and half in oak barrels, which adds oxygen and complexity. No new oak is used and the barrels are 2-5 years old to ensure as pure an expressions of the terroir as possible.
