We have been working with Gilles Morat and his Pouilly-Fuisses since 2007. Situated near the village of Vergisson, the winery has a fabulous view of both the rocks of Solutre and Vergission, perched on the edge of a hillside. Gilles is truly an artisan, as he farms 17 Pouilly Fuisse parcels and one St Veran parcel across a total of six hectares. The minerality of the soil have an incredible expression in his wines.
Organic viticulture (not certified) including no use of insecticides, and hand-harvesting, plus indigenous ferments and natural winemaking allow Gilles to make exquisite Pouilly-Fuisse in four different cuvees. We buy two (although we would love to drink all four). Tasting them side-by-side really shows why he makes the different cuvees as the expression of the land is so different in each.
