After gaining her winemaking chops at the famous Pouilly-Fumé Chateau de Tracy, Marielle Michot followed in her father Claude’s footsteps, and has been running her own domaine for a few years. She has just 3 hectares of vines, a very small plot, in the village of Saint-Andelain. The approach is very vine-centric, with careful tending of the 35-year old vines.
This Pouilly Fumé is called ‘Minérale’ - and with good reason. Very flinty clay soils contribute to the characteristic stony quality of this wine, while 8 months ageing in stainless steel on the lees helps to bring some texture and mouthfeel.
