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 "Rosé de Maceration" Brut NV

This wine is 100% pinot noir from the premier cru Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Fabrice macerates the juice on the skins for up to 12 hours before it is pressed and fermented in enamel and neutral barrique. 80% of the wine continues elevage for 8 months, while 20% is racked to neutral barrique where it ages for 18 months. At 8 months of elevage the current year’s wine is blended with the 18-month aged wine from the previous year to complete the assemblage. Doing so allows Fabrice to balance the tannins which naturally come from saignée rosé with the mellowness which comes from time in neutral barrel.
