About This Wine...
Located 200 kilometres South of Paris and 35 kilometres North of Nevers, tthe Domaine Gilles Chollet covers 11 hectares of vineyards.
The estate is in the village of Pouilly-sur-Loiire. The vines are planted on clayey, chalky, sandy soils with Southwest exposure.
Gilles Chollet worked in the vineyards for over ten years before taking over the domaine from his father to develop it with his wife.
Little by little, Gilles has invested in high-performance equipment that allows him to better control the fermentation and to extract a maximum of aromas.
The vines,, are about 15 to 20 years old, are planted at a density of 6600 vine plants per hectare. The vines are treated at moderate doses against mildew, oidium (powdery mildew) and Botrytis Cinerea. The grapes are harvested by machine, generally between September 15th and October 15th.
The domaine is equipped with modern facilities that make temperature control and aging on the wine’s fine lees possible.
Wines are usually racked in late December then filtered and bottled from late March on.
