DOMAINE JEAN PIERRE SEVE POUILLY FUISSE AUX CHAILLOUX
Just like a musician, Jean Pierre Seve creates variations using the different notes that distinguish each of his terroirs as well as his own sensitivity, thus producing a most aromatic and harmonious symphony capable of awakening all your senses and inciting you to share this hearty pleasure.
The date for the September grape harvest is decided for each plot through strict monitoring of the maturity. Some plots are harvested mechanically, others manually (depending on the vine's shape and its age).The grapes enter the vat rooms quickly. They are then pressed using a low-pressure pneumatic press, which allows them to obtain a juice as clear as a finished wine. The must (freshly pressed grape juice) is poured in vats as it leaves the press. Twenty-four hours later, Jean-Pierre carries out a first racking, which consists in separating the clear juice from the heavier sediments deposited at the bottom of the vat.
This cuvée comes from a “Climat”. More precisely, the wine comes from a single parcel of vines “Aux Chailloux”. This terroir, recognised for its distinctive character, and has been classified as a Premier Cru from the 2020 vintage. The juice of this cuvée is placed in oak barrels for its alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. The Cuvée “Aux Chailloux” is vinified for 10 months in French oak barrels – 10% new barrels, the rest in barrels up to five years old.
The clay-limestone soil gives it a fruity nose; the palate is slightly peppery and spicy on the attack, to evolve into roundness and fat, on the finish. Freshness, finesse and length characterise this cuvée.
