The vines for Les Reisse Pouilly Fuisse are 82 year old Chardonnay vines from a monopole vineyard of predominantly clay based soil. Reduced yields helps increase flavour and concentration. The grapes are harvested by hand and pressed gently. Natural fermentation with indigenous yeasts and malolactic fermentation is completed before the wine ages from 15 to 18 months in oak, a combination of new, two year old and older barrels contribute to the complexity of the final product.
