"Our La Soufrandière estate, bought in 1947 by our paternal grandfather, is located in Vinzelles, in the Mâcon wine-producing region of South Burgundy. Here we work 4 ha of Pouilly-Vinzelles Climat “Les Quarts”, 0.55 ha of Pouilly-Vinzelles Climat “Les Longeays” and 1 ha of Mâcon-Vinzelles “Le Clos de Grand-Père”. All our vines, between 33 and 80 years old, are magnificently located, facing East or South-East halfway up or at the top of the slopes of very red clay and “crinoidal” limestone, formed over 180 million years ago.
Great news: Since the 2016 season, we’ve been lucky enough to be able to operate around another 5 ha, already certified Organic.
From the 2016 harvest, La Soufrandière will be able to offer you wines from Saint-Véran “La Bonnode” (3.5 ha), Pouilly-Fuissé “Les Chatenays” (0.70 ha) in Vergisson, Pouilly-Fuissé “Les Vigneraies” (0.50 ha) on the slopes of the Roche de Solutré, and even a little Aligoté (0.30 ha)."
