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 2016 "Les Châtaigniers" Extra-Brut

Les Châtaigniers is a vineyard parcel located in the village of Festigny on the left bank of the Marne valley. Here the concentration of clay in the soil makes this terroir an ideal expression for pinot meunier. François farms meunier vines of 10 and 25 years old with the same organic rigor he applies elsewhere.
