Soil diversity and exclusive use of the « chardonnay » variety

The 7.40 hectares (18.50 acres) of our estate are planted between the foot of the famous Solutré rock and the cosy cirque of Pouilly.
There are 17 plots, the oldest of which were planted by my great grandfather in 1927 and 1938, divided up over all the communal territory and offering several soil types : clay, limestone, and marl.

We do our utmost to care for the land with which we have been entrusted : it is the matrix of the treasures we produce. We plough it systematically, we don't use any fertilizers, and we only accept the use of organic matter.
The treatment necessary to the vine stocks is kept to the bare essentials.
