In the very heart
of a sumptuous
natural site

Classified as « Grand Site de France », Solutré Pouilly Vergisson is a dynamic place that lives forward preserving and sharing its treasures. The label “Grand Site de France” attributed by the French Government is rare and rewards a true commitment to a sustainable approach.

The rocky outcrops of Solutré and Vergisson, emblematic of these vineyards, remind us that from a height of 500 metres, 200 million years of history are looking down on us! Indeed, 20,000 years ago, one of the most fully evolved prehistoric cultures flourished here. This AOC, instituted in 1936, reunites four villages: Chaintré, Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly and Vergisson.

CHAINTRÉ, FUISSÉ,
SOLUTRÉ-POUILLY,
VERGISSON
FOUR VILLAGESFOR ASINGLE APPELLATION

Chaintré, Fuissé, Solutré-Pouilly and Vergisson are the exclusive villages producing the so-called Pouilly-Fuissé appellation. This 760 hectares (±1.880 acres) vineyard is growing on a narrow piece of land to provide us with this great white Burgundy wine.

Chaintré
Chaintré gets its name from the old Roman House « Cantriaca », which was located on the Via Agrippa that led to Lyon. Chaintré is known for its wonderful hillside located above the Saône plain...
Fuissé
Fuissé is nestled in a natural amphitheatre, with a forest at its South. There is a light slope in the Northern part of the village, where the Romanin runs. The village is terraced from West to East by the wines’ hillsides.
Solutré-Pouilly
The Solutré rock became a symbol of the Southern Burgundy, with its long history of geological events over the secondary era. The current landscape has been shaped both by the Tertiary Alps’ lift and by the erosion, resulting in a great soils’ diversity.
Vergisson
The village is located in terraced hamlets within a natural circus between the 2 rocks. The existence of many megaliths confirms that Vergisson hold its name from the Celtic “verg” meaning stopes.

THE POUILLY-FUISSÉ,
FIVE « TERROIRS »
FOR A SINGLE GRAPE VARIETY: THE CHARDONNAY

Chardonnay is the only voice through which the various Terroirs of the Pouilly-Fuissé are expressed. From one area to another and from clayey marls to chalky soils, these specificities offer to this great Burgundy wine richness and minerality.
