Domaine Séverin & Gilles Chollet, Pouilly-sur-Loire

The Chollet family have been producing outstanding Pouilly Fumé for over sixty years. Today the domaine is run by Séverin who has been working on organic conversion and will be fully certified by 2024. The fourteen hectares of vineyards include the three main terroirs of Pouilly – Sables (Clay-siliceous), Caillottes (Clay-limestone) and Terres Blanches (Kimmeridgian marls). A super, modern winery has recently been completed and all the wines are now vinified and aged with even greater precision in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. The flagship Pouilly Fumé from the estate is a blend of all three terroirs and is a classic example with a nose of white flowers, stone fruit and smoky flint. The ‘Caillottes’ cuvée is tighter, with extra intensity and a deeper mineral character.
