Unusual for Mâcon properties, the Domaine du Chalet Pouilly actually has its own Wikipedia entry! The domaine was started in 1850 by the Plumet family on a hillside overlooking the town of Pouilly in the “Pouilly-Fuissé” region of the Macon. The last of the Plumets was Henri who inherited it in 1950. Today it is run by Marie-Eve Léger, who joined the domain in 2009 after completing her degree, and her parents Agnès and Bernard. The 8.5-hectare property is located at the border of Pouilly-Fuissé (5 hectares), Saint-Véran (3 hectares), and Mâcon-Solutré (0.5 hectare) appellations, so all three wines are produced. The Légers practice traditional wine-growing methods, respecting the terroir, and their philosophy is to allow nature to express itself through the vinification process in order to create rich-flavored wines with a rustic touch. Their vines are old, and their soil rich and calcareous. The domaine is named after the slatted facade of the winery that lends it the appearance of a chalet. The wines are generally aged in used demi-muids (large barrels) except the St. Véran, which sees no oak contact. 100% Chardonnay, of course.
