DESCRIPTION

Pouilly-Fuissé Vieilles Vignes: Sourced from two vineyards in the hamlet of Pouilly: “Chailloux” and “Vers Cras”, the vines for this cuvée are fifty to seventy years old. A powerful wine of great depth and length, this old vines offering is barrel-fermented and barrel-aged with about 25% of the oak being new. About 1200 bottles of this elite cuvee of Fuissé from the Cheveau family are distributed in the USA (a limited number of magnums are also available).

About the Estate:The cellars of the Domaine Cheveau are situated in the hamlet of Solutré-Pouilly in the heart of the appellation of Pouilly-Fuissé. The domaine was established by André Cheveau in 1950. His efforts were followed by his son, Michel, and now Michel’s two sons, Nicolas and Julien are actively running this fourteen (14) hectare estate. The vineyard holdings are predominantly located in and around Solutré-Pouilly but extend as well into Davayé in the Maconnais and Saint Amour in the Beaujolais.

The vineyards dedicated to Chardonnay are composed of the classic clay – limestone composition that provides the perfect ambience to produce the grand wines of Burgundy. The Gamay in the vineyards in Saint Amour, this famed cru in the Beaujolais, is planted essentially in sand, schist and granite.

All harvesting at the Domaine Cheveau is done by hand and the wines are fermented and vinified parcel-by-parcel. Fermentation and aging is done either in barrel or stainless steel tank depending on the particular terroir of each site. Overall production is approximately 60,000 bottles per annum.
