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 Les Valnons 2016.

The Cuvée Les Valnons, produced by Fabrice Pouillon, is a Champagne Blanc de blancs made from a single plot in the village of Aÿ-Champagne, an unusual grape variety for this terroir.

In fact, this cuvée is totally atypical, since the Aÿ terroir is renowned for its Pinot Noirs, and there are virtually no Chardonnays to be found here. 

This Champagne reveals scents of green apple, peach and citrus. On the palate, it's a fresh cuvée, revealing lovely chalky and creamy notes, offering the volume typical of Grand Cru terroirs. 

A very fine Champagne, with great ageing potential.
