Tasting Notes

Vibrant notes of Green apple, quince, pear, and citrus are all supported by juicy freshness. Wonderfully textured and smooth, this is a classically made Macon with a tangy, zesty finish.

  • Critics Reviews

Sourced from a small 0.5 hectare parcel of 25 year old vines, with a southeast exposition and clay-limestone soil. Fermentation and elevage are split between roughly 75% stainless steel and 25% neutral oak barrels. 

The estate counts 8.6 hectares of vines across seven parcels, principally in Pouilly-Loche, with plots in Macon-Loche and Pouilly-Fuisse rounding out the holdings. No chemical products are used in the vineyard and Olivier is committed to organic processes from start to finish, though he has chosen not to pursue certification. All grapes are manually harvested before a long pressing, followed by alcoholic fermentation using only indigenous yeasts.
