The estate practices sustainable wine-growing methods and some plots are grown according to the organic standards.
Today, Chalet Pouilly is run by Marie-Eve ...
Light yellow (thanks to the old vineyards ) colour and an elegant fruity scent . Flavors of fresh buttered bread with floral fragrances as well as a sweet aroma of ripe fruits and a roasted hint are characteristic of this win.
Wine Advocate"Bottled at the end of February, and raised in 15% new oak, the 2012 Pouilly Fuissé offers very good intensity on the nose with lightly brushed acacia honey, hints of nougat and citrus fruit, perhaps a little richer than the 2013. The palate is well-balanced and slightly honeyed with hints of hazelnut and smoke coming through. It has a very well-balanced, quite deep finish, although I suspect that the 2013 may have great persistency and tension." - Neal Martin, Sept 2014
