Description

100% Organic (certification on progress). Grounds are ploughed under the vine stock. A natural cover planting is hold in every rows. In order to encourage the development of life in our grounds, we only use mineral essences sometimes associated with herbs and plants preparation. Slow pressing. Cold fermentation with only native yeast. Aged in oak barrel (400 liters) during 11 months then in tank for a year. Light filtration just before the bottling (generally beginning of September, in november for this vintage, 2 years after the harvest).

Tasting note

Dry white wine offering a golden colour with emerald. Very unique bouquet mixing acacia flower and brioche notes. The mouth is complex and rich with a beautiful finish on almonds notes.

Food pairing

Scallops with truffle, wild sea bass with cream.

About the producer

Domaine Sébastien Giroux is a relatively new up-and-coming wine producer in the Mâconnais, with 6 hectares of vines in and around Fuissé. The family vineyards have been in the hands of Giroux family for almost three centuries. In 2009, Sebastien succeeded his father with taking over management of the domain. Since then, Sebastien has made a number of changes: The winery now works 100% organically with miniscule amounts of additives used in the wine making process. Harvesting is done by hand, but not everything has been renewed: the oldest source for their Pouilly-Fuissé Vieilles Vignes comes from vines up to 80 years old, vines which have lasted several generations.

Vinification takes place traditionally with as little interference as possible; a natural, long and cool fermentation followed by storage in stainless steel tanks. Sèbastien does not want to exaggerate and cover the wine’s natural flavours unnecessarily, the wines must be elegant and as true to their terroir as possible. Sebastien bottles only when he feels his wines are ready. In the cellar, he likes to take his time with very long maturations, of up to 30 months, which is rare for this region.
