Pascal and Rachel Kerbiquet own Domaine du Bouchot which is situated in the village of Saint-andelain, just to the north of Pouilly-sur-loire. they are devoted, experienced and enthusiastic winemakers which, coupled with a fantastic plot of land, is the perfect recipe for high standard wines with true integrity. The 10 hectares of vines are planted in chalky, clayey soil facing south-west. The surrounding land is not cleared of cover crop (grass) so as to force the vine roots to go deep in search of nourishment. the grapes are fermented in stainless steel vats that are both efficient and reduce the chances of oxidisation. Pascal's pouilly Fumé is fruit driven, with classic gooseberry aromas and amazingly fresh acidity.
