Wholesale $30.41 / Retail $38.99

SKU: 21907

Domaine du Chalet Pouilly is a small grower, but small can be beautiful. Father and daughter team of Bernard and Marie-Eve Leger are in charge here, the winery itself founded way back in 1850 on top of the hill overlooking the village of Solutre-Pouilly. In case you were wondering, it is named after the slatted facade of the winery that lends it the appearance of a chalet. These succinctly crafted, mineral-driven wines that you just want to elope with.

 

Accolades: 

Jancis Robinson ““60-year-old vines, some planted as far back as 1945, on limestone and clay soils. Matured in French oak barrels (a small percentage new) for 18 months. Pale gold with aromas that are complex and spicy, rich without being fat. There’s a cedary character from the oak but it’s subtle and well married with the fruit. The oak shows on the palate in a mealy, creamy breadth. Freshness balances the richness of what seems like lees- and oak-derived texture. Perfect now but no rush.” (Julia Harding MW, Feb 2020
