This domaine has been in the family for 10 generations. It now covers 59 hectares of vineyards planted primarily with the Sauvignon varietal.  Fouassier vinifies their wines separately according to their lieu-dits (individual parcels). They are committed to using growing methods that respect the soils, water, life forms and natural rhythms in the vineyards in order to produce authentic, living wines. The entire domaine is managed in accordance with the principles of Biodynamic Agriculture. The Biodynamic approach and the lunar calendar dictate the work in both the vineyards and the winery.

Rare and Fine 2019.  

Tasting Notes

Melodie is made from 40 year old Sauvignon Blanc vines that grow on 80% “Cretaceous” (clay and flinty) and 20% “Kimméridgien” (limestone) soils, optimally positioned on southern exposed slopes.  Native yeast fermentation in French oak barrels and aging on the lees for about ten months.  Nose of candied orange, vanilla and spices. Rich, balanced and complex with a focused racy palate thanks to superb acidity.
