Puits à Vin literally means “Wine Well”, and is an endearing name that locals give the parcels that produce their best wines. This Chardonnay from clay and schist soils shows incredible energy and balance, and makes a compelling argument that the Coteaux Lyonnais can produce fine whites alongside the reds.
Since its inception, the entire domaine has been certified organic. The vineyard is maintained without any chemical products, pesticides, or synthetic fertilizer. The soil is plowed to encourage microbial activity, and biodynamic infusions are used to promote growth and reduce the use of copper and sulfur. Baptiste makes some spot on natural wines that are bringing new attention to this long overlooked appellation.
