Description

Château de Chaintré is run by young winemaker Yannick Paquet. Yannick is the son of Jean-Paul and Monique Paquet, who established themselves in Pouilly Fuissé in 1959. Together the family owns three Pouilly Fuissé domaines and have been making wines since 1971.  Yannick owns four hectares of vines in Pouilly-Fuissé. The vines are 35 years old on average and are planted at 200-300 metres above sea level. The south and south-west exposure on the limestone and clay soils give the wine the ripeness and weight that is characteristic of Pouilly-Fuissé. The family practises sustainable viticulture and annually applies organic fertiliser to every plot dependent on need. Meticulous leaf plucking to increase airflow and exposure to sunlight is employed to combat fungal diseases instead of using sprays.

Produced from 100% Chardonny , fermented in stainless steel then aged 90% in Stainless Steel, 10% in oak barrels (50% new, 50% wnd and third fill) for 11 months on fine lees.  This wine is a bright gold colour in the glass with aromas of ripe, tropical fruit and notes of brioches. The palate is smooth and balanced with hints of fresh pear and lemon.

Ideal with roast chicken, shellfish and quiche.
