R. Pouillon 'Les Valnons' 2015
“This is R. Pouillon's 'daring-wine. First of all, because they had to be bold enough to make wine from the vineyards of Aÿ, when they were a neighbor of Mareuil. And then because Aÿ was the fiefdom of Pinot Noir, when they had opted for Chardonnay. As it turns out, this grape variety has marvelously well adapted to the place and the terroir.
