R. Pouillon Extra Brut Solera NV
The idea of this cuvée is to erase the influence of vintage and focus solely on terroir. It is 50% each Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and all from Mareuil-sur-Aÿ. Every year, 30% is racked off for secondary fermentation and replaced with 30% new wine. Up until the 2010 vintage was added, the entire Solera was aged in steel; it is now aged in oak uprights and undergoes full malolactic.
