Pouilly Fuisse "Pierrefolle" - 2020

The only vineyard situated outside the Clos (Chateau des Rontets and Clos Varambon). Located 500 meters south off the domaine, terroir is warmer however benefits from a cool wind coming from the north. The whole plot sits on granitic bedrock with no limestone or clay.
