Chateau des Rontets Pouilly Fuisse “Clos Varambon” 2015

$65.00

An excellent white Burgundy from the beautiful Pouilly Fuisse region where Chardonnay grows in ideal climatic conditions to absolutely shine.

90 Points, Burghound, “Not surprisingly this is much more elegant with its fresher nose of essence of pear and apple that is laced with floral and citrus peel nuances. There is both good cut and energy to the solidly concentrated medium-bodied flavors that deliver excellent length.”

More Information

Pouilly-Fuissé is the important white wine appellation in the Mâconnais district of Southern Burgundy. Being on top of a hill means that the only water to pass through the vineyards comes from above; purity is the hallmark of Château des Rontets. Fabio and Claire exchanged their city lives as architects and returned to the family home to become farmers; Château des Rontets has been in Claire’s family since 1850. The property is 6.5ha with the oldest vines being planted in 1910; harvesting is done carefully and by hand. The farm is certified as organic and as such all viticulture is practised with the aim to produce natural grapes of the highest quality. The soils are clay and limestone for the silky fine Clos Varambon and granite for the rich Pierrefolle. Fermentation takes place with natural yeasts only in temperature controlled oak vats. Maturation is on fine lees in oak barrels ranging from 10 to 24 months. After a long period on lees, the wines are racked then bottled without filtration. This is pure, pristine white Burgundy.
