Ample et généreux, Pierrefolle est l'une des cuvées les plus accessibles du domaine certifié bio, tout en étant taillée pour une bonne garde. More info

Pierrefolle comes from a lieu-dit with granite bedrock and fairly deep loam soil. This parcel-based cuvée is more accessible than others from the same domain. Even so, its strong mineral character ensures that it has strong keeping potential. Its ample, generous palate is enhanced by citrus and exotic fruit notes. During vinification, the wine is left for a year on its lees. It is bottled without fining or filtration.

Pouilly-Fuissé Pierrefolle Château des Rontets serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Côte de veau poêlée, Feuilleté aux Saint-Jacques, Filet de cabillaud grillé.

Peak: Drink until 2028

    Information about domain Château des Rontets

    The Château des Rontets, situated in Fuissé, is a family domain that was founded in the 19th century. It has been in the same family since 1870. The domain is now run by Claire Gazeau (great grandaughter of Francois Varambon who initially bought the property) and her husband Fabio Montrasi . It is situated on a plot of land of 5.6 hectacres at the top of a hill known locally as Les Rontets that looks out over the village of Fuissé. The estate has another plot of 0.5 hectacres in Pierrefolle, as well as another half hectacre in Côte de Besset in the commune of Saint-Amour. Since 2005 they have had organic certification. This domain has risen to a very high standard. Anything from Château Rontet is a sound investment.
