R. Pouillon & fils

Champagne| Vallée de la Marne | Mareuil-sur-Aÿ

Fabrice is dedicated to the vitality, energy and health of his vineyards. In 2003, he began the work of conversion to organic viticulture and today he incorporates biodynamic principles into his work including compost management, spraying herbal “teas” and applying 500 and 501 treatments. He currently uses only organic compounds for fertilizer, pheromone confusion to ward off pests, cover crops to restore nutrients in the soil and plows alternating rows. He is also a member of Lutte Raisonnée. These are wines that are light on their feet yet possess depth and intensity that unfold with each sip.

R. Pouillon & fils 2012 Les Blanchiens Brut-Nature

Les Blanchiens is a mono-cru in Mareuil. This wine is an equal blend of pinot noir and chardonnay, fermented separately in used barriques. This vintage cuvee speaks the terroir of Mareuil with grace and authority. Unique aromatics of black tea and bitter orange lead to an ultra-long, delineated palate. The wine has plenty of drive and power without being heavy or dull.
