Producer Information

The 14.5 hectare Domaine G. Saumaize (formerly Domaine des Maillettes) is now wholly run by Guillaume Saumaize, follwing the recent retirement of his mother, Annie. Tending to more than forty parcels of vines (up to 80 years old) spread across four Mâconnais communes (Vergisson, Davayé, Solutré and Prissé), he produces Pouilly-Fuissé and a range of other Mâcon AOC wines.

In 2018, the Saumaize family invested in a new barrel cellar, giving them much more flexibility to vinify individual parcels of grapes separately and thus express their terroir even more clearly. The Chardonnays are classically styled, with part or full vinification in oak for richness and complexity.

Currently working towards HVE 3 certification, the domaine uses sustainable farming methods and minimal chemical interventions. Guillaume pays particular attention to preserving his soils, helping to highlight the specific terroir of each plot. When treatment is required, organic products are used whenever possible.

Grapes

Chardonnay,

Production

Grapes grown on limestone and clay soils.

Fermented in barrique, this wine then spent 12 months in a mixture of new and older French oak.

Tasting Notes

Fine, full-bodied white Burgundy.

Expressive, almost exotic aromas and flavours with a lovely touch of oak that adds a slightly nutty character to the lush, ripe Chardonnay fruit. Rich but restrained, there is a real finesse and elegant balance to this very classy white Burgundy.

A versatile white that will drink beautifully with poultry, fish and hearty salads.
