Online pass for TWO - Meet the Pouilly Fuisse winemaker
A terrific opportunity to meet Romain Bourgeois from the Domaine des Deux Roches winery in southern Burgundy and hear his stories.
Domaine des Deux Roches owns some of the best vineyards in the region between the twin rocky outcrops the Rock of Solutré and the Rock of Vergisson. These two towering limestone escarpments signal in spectacular fashion the start of the Pouilly Fuissé terrain and a top expression of the Chardonnay grape.
Where else in France are you going to find (at reasonable price) a richer, riper version of Chardonnay still with a perfect seam of balancing acidity and carefully judged oak? These wines are often terrific value for money.
Beginning with a pure and mineral (unoaked) Macon-Villages as a reference point, we will move onto a single vineyard Saint Veran (partly matured in oak) and finish with an old vine Pouilly Fuissé from stunning south-facing slopes.
