We propose a "Zen" version of multiple cuvées, with no added sulfur until bottling. For these wines, the total added sulfur is around 20 mg/l. Only few bottles "Zen" are produced (900 to 1500 bottles for each) Walk, listen, smell. You are in the middle of the plowed La Soufrandière vineyard of Pouilly-Vinzelles Climat “Les Quarts,” on a terroir that we think is one of the best in Burgundy. Maybe we’re biased by our endless love for it, or maybe it’s because we just know it deep down. The pinnacle, an old shelter with a roof covered in varnished tiles, stands like a guardian. The earth here is soft, aerated, perfumed. It is alive. The soul of the terroir is undeniably present. With an almost magical exposure at the top of a southeast-facing slope, our oldest Chardonnay vines (45 to 80 years old) are rooted in an active limestone and clay soil (Bajocian, rich with siliceous crystals), giving birth to powerful, age-worthy wines. The nose is citrusy and mineral, and the balanced palate shows complexity and a long finish. As vintages go by, the terroir remains; it’s up to us to preserve it! The tension and structure in 2018 make this a great Burgundy!
