R. Pouillon

The Domaine Pouillon covers more than 7 ha spread over 42 parcels on the most beautiful regional terroirs, such as Aÿ, Mareuil sur Aÿ, Mutigny, Epernay ...

Today at the head of the vineyard, Fabrice Pouillon, third generation, combines innovation and respect for tradition, with hard work in the vineyard, massal selections, compost, horse ploughing, plant cover, yield control and extensive plot work.

At Pouillon, we're winegrowers from father to son. Domaine was founded in 1947 by ROger Pouillon, who settled in Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. His son James developed it, and since 1998 his grandson Fabrice has been in charge. Today, the vineyard covers 7.7 hectares, scattered over 42 parcels - in Grand Cru and Premier Cru - in the communes of Aÿ, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Mutigny, Epernay, etc. It's a real playground for Fabrice Pouillon. While he is absolutely determined to preserve the Champagne tradition intact, he is well aware that there are new ways of looking at viticulture and winemaking, and is constantly experimenting with new techniques to live up to his credo: the red thread of nature that must be found in the wines.

In the vineyard appear massal selections, compost, horse-drawn ploughing, plant cover, ... "living soils make it possible to produce living wines". He imposes respect for the natural rhythm of the vine, short pruning,... See more ...

Description R. Pouillon Solera.

This is a natural brut champagne from the terroir of Mareuil sur Aÿ, classified as Premier Cru.

It is an anti-millennium champagne as a timeless vision through several vintages, in this case 16 vintages assembled successively said of the principle of Solera.

The grape varieties used are Pinot Noir for 50% and Chardonnay for 50%.

The vineyard is located halfway up the exceptional Mareuil-sur-Aÿ hillside on the other side of the Marne, with parcels forming a cru envied the world over for the specificity of its soil, its exposure and its oceanic and continental influenced climate.

All the grapes are harvested by hand and the wine is aged in oak barrels for a few months before being bottled and taken down to the cellar to rest on laths, forgetting about the time.

The robe is bright Versailles gold.

In the mouth as in the nose, perfect balance between olfactory and gustatory sensations mixing the splendor of white flowers and citrus fruits with the perfumes and tastes of red Pinot Noir grapes such as wild strawberry, Burlat cherry, cherry, Jinx, and even black currant. Some sensations of delicate peppery notes.
