Created twenty years ago by Jacques Saumaize and his wife Nathalie, the area covers eight hectares and covers three designations: Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran and Macon Blanc.
The culture is traditional, with three tillage by year, simple Guyot trellising and systematic pruning. Each parcel are harvested at optimal maturity, vinified and bottled separately.
“I like the Mâconnais as I feel more growers realise they have to work that bit harder as they don’t have the prestige of Meursault, Montrachet etc.”
