- Mâcon, Pouilly-Fuissé, Burgundy, France
The Charlet wines are made by the Barbet family, whose cru Beaujolais we also import. The Charlets and Barbets are related through marriage, and the Charlets were the original owners of Domaine des Billards in Saint-Amour.
The Barbets purchase fruit from families they have known for generations. The land is farmed sustainably and the wines are made at the winery in Beaujolais. The grapes for the Pouilly-Fuissé “Les Vieux Murs” come from two sites that cover 9ha total, with vines that are on average 50 years old. The Mâcon-Villages “La Crochette” comes from vines in Viré-Clessé and west of the village of Mâcon.
