    Cuvée presentation

    This Pouilly-Fuissé is the product of sixty-year-old vines from the clos of the same name. They produce small, concentrated, aromatic grapes. The production of this wine involves a spell in 228 and 400-litre casks. After racking, the wine is matured for 10 months on fine lees, lending it further character and texture. This cuvée is designed for keeping, as it only really starts to express its aromas after three years. So don't be afraid to wait a good ten years before opening it.

    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.
