Notes from La Soufrandière:

"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.

We opted for Organic and Biodynamic Farming as soon as we took the estate over in 2000. To us, this farming that quite simply respects life, that eschews the use of herbicides or synthetic pesticides, seems the only way to produce outstanding wines that are balanced, vibrant, and reveal their terroir. We also limit our yields (to around 40 hl/ha) by natural practices such as bud pruning."
