Domaine La Soufrandise Pouilly Fuisse Vieilles Vignes 2020 Burgundy, France

The Melin family have owned Domaine La Soufrandise, which is located in the heart of Fuissé, since the 1850s. When the lease ran out in 1986, Nicolas Melin and his wife Françoise decided to take over the domaine with no previous winemaking or viticulture experience. Nicolas learnt on the job while studying oenology at Dijon on the side. Today Nicolas is the 6th generation of the Melin family to run the estate. His attitude towards biodiversity and meticulous attention to detail, which stem from his background in engineering and forestry, have resulted in a switch to sustainable vineyard management. The seven hectares of vineyards are spread over 30 different plots across Fuissé, over half of which are more than 45 years old. The different aspects, rootstocks and soils across the vineyards, provide Nicolas with multiple options for blending his flagship Pouilly-Fuissé Vieilles Vignes. The grapes are harvested by hand at a later than average date to capture the ripe, exotic fruit flavours.

This old-vine Chardonnay has aromas of white nectarine, peach and a subtle hint of tropical fruit on the nose. The minerality from the chalky soils shines through on the palate, alongside great concentration and fresh acidity with hints of lemon zest on the long finish
