Our vineyards and cuvées

For our whole harvest, the grape harvest is mechanized. The grape is forwarded in our cellar to be pressed. The pressing is soft for a maximum respect of the fruit. The must rests from 12 to 24 in cooled tanks for must racking (to take off the biggest particles, seeds and pulp). The next day, the clarified juice is put in tanks thermo regulated, the fermentation will be made in rather low temperatures there, 15-18°c, the more it will be long, the more the contribution of fruity aromas will be important. After fermentation the wine lays on fine lees to give more richness and roundness in the mouth..

Vieilles Vignes The POUILLY FUME ” Vieilles Vignes ” is produced on flint and clay soils of Saint-Andelain’s from more than 50 years vines. Thanks to great exposition, the maturity is early and these plots are alaways the first to be picked.
We find in the wine, this minerality which transmits it the flint, still called “Pierre à fusil”. It stays one year in tank before the bottling. It can be kept 3 – 5 years before drinking it.
This wine is great for aperitif. You will enjoy the nice pairing with a fried “foie gras”, frogs’ legs, shellfish, cheeses and other dishes.
Cuvée de Galfins The ” Cuvée des Galfins ” is made from a single plot of land situated on kimmeridgian marls. We wait for the ideal maturity to reach the best expression of aromas.
Grapes are always gold colored and give different notes according to vintages : lemon, grapefruit, orange, mandarin, sometimes even exotic fruits.
This wine can be served in apéritif, with a festive meal, as shellfish, seafoods, fishes, white meats or cheeses…
Domaine de Congy The ” Domaine de Congy ” is made from  vines on Argilo-calcaire. The wine is often more crispy with notes of white fruits, green apple, pear and white flowers. It will be really appreciated at  apéritif or with a dozen of oysters.
