Pale gold colour with green highlights. Natural, refreshing and well rounded. Notes of white flowers on the nose. The altitude has produced a streak of minerality to complement the peach, pear and ripe apple fruit.
The most prestigious appellation of the Maconnais, this plot has a high average vine age of 50 years, well situated at altitudes of up to 500 metres above sea level. The extra elevation is crucial as it lengthens the ripening period of the grapes thus ensures more rounded fruit characteristics in the wines. Barrel fermented and barrel aged until the April following harvest.
Domaine Deux Roches Pouilly Fuisse Vielles Vignes 2012 is a stunning example of Pouilly-Fuisse.
