WINE INFORMATION

The viticultural history of the Barraud family began in 1905, when Jean-Marie Barraud first purchased parcels in Vergisson, the highest point in the Mâconnais. Since that time, Daniel Barraud, along with his son Julien and wife Martine (the master of the vines), have turned his family’s domaine into the benchmark producer of the region and a must-have for all Burgundy lovers.

Pouilly-Fuissé is an important white-wine appellation located in the Mâcon district of southern Burgundy.  Its wines command the highest prices in the Mâconnais, and only Chardonnay may be used.  Vineyards are located in sun traps on limestone soils, producing ripe, full-bodied wines.  Wines are typically aged a year in barrel before release.

The cuvee Alliance Vieilles Vignes comes from 60-plus year old Chardonnay vines situated on 4 different sites in the towns of Vergisson and Fuisse. Soils here are clay on limestone an vineyards are planted at 300-350 meters above sea level. Fermentation occurs with wild yeasts. The wine is aged in barrels, stainless steel, and older barrels. The final wine is aged for 2 months before bottling
