Story

The wine
The Chasselas is a forgotten grape variety that is being revived with a passion for the land and know-how.
The Chasselas "Doré de Fontainebleau", a cousin of the Chasselas de Moissac, is said to originate from the borders of Switzerland, France and Italy. Once a veritable institution in the Pouilly vineyard, it is now in the process of disappearing. Only 35 ha remain in production in this vineyard.

Vinification
Grapes are harvested when ripe, pressed directly and then fermented at a controlled temperature (18°C) to preserve the aromatic potential of the grapes.
