This small appellation, Pouilly Loché, covers a mere 32 hectares, of which nearly 30% belongs to Clos des Rocs.  The soils are characterized by iron-rich clay and limestone, often with up to 30cm of dense limestone pebble dispersion at the surface. The resulting wines are leaner than their counterparts in neighboring Pouilly Fuisse and carry a hint of earth, yet they are quite rich in mineral, with enough fruit density to properly support the robust structural elements.  Les Barres is comprised of two parcels, with vines aged 30 and 70 years and both facing the Clos des Rocs, comprise this cuvée . The soils are more gravelly, with stones interspersed. 80% of the wine is raised in old barrels, with the balance in cuve. The wine is exceptionally lively and carries hints of spice, but all of this energy is beautifully controlled on the palate. This is the smallest production of the domaine, at around 300cs per vintage.

Pairing: White flaky fish in a lemon butter sauce, shell fish, quiche 

Grape: Chardonnay

Soil:  Limestone-gravel soils, with many small stones
