Notes from the Winemaker:

This family estate is owned by Roger and Christine Saumaize-Michelin and is located in the Village of Vergisson, the best of the five villages for Pouilly-Fuissé. The estate built new cellars in 1991 and uses 10 - 25% new oak per vintage. This 9 hectare estate is planted to 8.5 hectares of Chardonnay and half an hectare of Gamay for Mâcon Rouge. The vines are 40-45 years old of age on average. All of the wines are 100% barrel fermented and 100% M-L fermentation. Roger Saumaize makes about 3,800 cases of wine per year under three different appellations: Mâcon-Villages, St Veran and Pouilly-Fuissé.


Ratings and Reviews:

91 Points - Vinous:
"(from southwest-facing vines on soil rich in clay, with clumps of calcaire; done in fûts, including a bit of new oak): Bright medium yellow. Expressive, perfumed aromas of peachy fruit salad and spicy oak. Quite rich and thick but also vibrant and alive, with its subtle peachy high tones framed by bracing citrussy acidity. Needs time in bottle to harmonize and knit. This is not a particularly mineral site, according to Christine Saumaize. Incidentally, the family's 2016 Le Haut des Crays was scheduled to be bottled in November." Stephen Tanzer - (Nov 2017)
