2019 Pouilly-Loché Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Marcel Couturier

These vines are over 80 years old and the wine they have produced in 2019 is so wonderfully concentrated and persistent. There is an intense pineapple character - sweetness but also so much freshness, with a pithy grapefruit note on the palate. A bit of a bargain.

This wine is now sold out. Please get in touch with your advisor or one of our team on [email protected] or 01473 313 300 for more information or guidance on an alternative.

2019 Pouilly-Loché Vieilles Vignes, Domaine Marcel Couturier
Domaine Marcel Couturier

Coming from a family more concerned with growing cereals and raising cattle (although they did own vines), Marcel Couturier’s future in wine seemed distant when he was young. After working for an uncle with a small domaine, he started bottling his own wines in 2005. He now owns about 10 hectares, and the results are impressive. Crisp and pure, they show the potential of the Mâconnais for wines to rival their northern neighbours. At prices like this, they make perfect everyday Chardonnays.
