Les Crays is a terroir of limestone scree on blue marl from the Pliensbachien. This south-facing hillside of the rock of Vergisson, very bright and protected from the fresh north wind, produces fat wines with chiseled minerality and revealing rich and multiple citrus aromas. This cuvée is harvested on several plots planted between 1930 and 1966 forming 2.16 hectares in total.

Domaine Eric Forest produces five exclusive vintages of Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran and Macon-Vergisson on plots of vines planted between 1930 and 1979. Eric Forest's grandfather, who possesses a vast knowledge in nature and biodynamics, has greatly influenced the approach to wine making .To maintain the highest level of accuracy, Domaine Eric Forest realises all the work manually. The domaine prunes the plants in a manner to allow for the vines to have ample ventilation thus minimising the need to use phytosanitary products. The grapes are hand picked and gently pressed. Here begins the winemaking process. The wine stands on its lees for ten to fifteen months inside oak barrels with reduced doses of sulphites. The wine is then personally bottled using gravity and often unfiltered.
