About the winery:
Founded in 1850, Domaine du Chalet Pouilly is located in Burgundy, France in the heart of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation. The estate vineyards stretch across the hillsides of eight sun-soaked acres of the Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran, and Mâcon-Solutré appellations. The age of vines range from recent plantings in 2011 to century-old vineyard plots in Saint-Véran. These “vieilles vignes” (old vines) and younger plots grow harmoniously in a unique limestone-clay soil and are always farmed with environmental consciousness in mind, making Domaine du Chalet Pouilly an ideal setting for production of the highest quality wines.
Today, the estate is renovated and transformed. The family business became more modern, the quality of the wines has been raised to new levels, and Domaine du Chalet Pouilly has earned worldwide recognition. Mr. and Mme. Léger-Plumet invested in contemporary equipment and self-training in order to make the best wine possible while standing by authentic wine-making traditions. Along with their daughter, Fabienne, who joined the estate in 2010, Bernard and Marie-Agnès continue to put their heart and soul into the development of Domaine Du Chalet Pouilly.
