Chaintré was already well known in roman times because of its strategic location on the North-South route near the Saône River. They built a very large Gallo-Roman village: the city of Cantricia, where the name Chaintré finds its origins. The surrounding hillsides being well exposed to a south-east light, they decided to plant vines there as early as the 3rd century. One this very site, in the 19th century, Monsieur Reyssié planted Chardonnay, turning the one of the Pouilly-Fuissé terroirs into a star. Comfortably rooted on its gentle slope, Clos Reyssié draws its strength and perso- nality from the rich and deep clay residue of its terroir. Its fruit-filled, well-ripened personality enhances its smooth yellow peach and exotic fruit aromas. Happiest when side by side with a delightful menu, it is tireless in its efforts to dazzle poultry in cream, fish in sauce as well as hearty appetites!
Fermentation and maturing: French oak barrels (228 liters) during 12 months. Additional ageing of 12 months in stainless steel vats over fine lees.
