Laboure-Roi Pouilly Fuisse Vieilles Vignes France 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

The controlled appellation of Pouilly Fuissé, instituted in 1936, takes in the four villages of Solutré-Pouilly, Fuissé, Vergisson and Chaintré. Our Reserve Pouilly Fuissé is crafted from Chardonnay grapes hand-harvested from a selection of old vines located in the two villages of Puissé and Vergisson. Lying on a foundation of fossiliferous limestone identical to those found further north in the Côte d'Or, the Bajocien escarpments of Solutré and Vergisson owe their dramatic profile to the presence of hard fossil corals which have resisted erosion. The vines are planted on the slopes and at the foot of these two hills on marly-limestone soils of Jurassic origin mixed with small rocks and schist. The hillsides have an easterly or south-easterly exposure and altitudes of 250 to 280 meters. Grapes come from 30-year-old low-yield vines.
