Fantastic wine from talented young winemaker Alexis Pollier who started working on a few tiny plots in Saint Véran, Pouilly Fuissé and Macon in 2015.
He grew up in the vineyards of his father Daniel Pollier and added biological viticulture to his own plots.
His wines already have a distinct character (2019 is his fifth vintage!) that has given him acclaim in the wine world. Pure on the fruit, dry minerality with razorsharp acidity wrapped in a thin layer of honey. This is a winemaker to watch!
Of this wine only 2 or 3 barrels per year are made. And these are no oak barrels, but barrels made of acacia wood! This gives a unique mild structure to the wine. This wine was purely intended to be consumed by friends and family, and Alexis supplies a few local winebars with it. After persistently asking for them, I was finally able to get an allocation of 90 bottles. So be quick!
