The Wine Merchant Thailand
Domaine du Bouchot are a seminal producer in the history of Pouilly Fume, as the very first domaine in the region to become certified back in 2009, as well as being a key campaigner in obtaining the AOC certification of the appellation.

Today, they are just two others certified organic, and Bouchot have stepped it up a further level by converting to biodynamics too, certified with both Demeter and Biodyvin.

At the helm of the estate is highly-talented and dedicated vigneron, Antoine Gouffier. Poilly-Fumé, like neighboring Sancerre, is full of producers who are loathe to taking risks.

Located on the right bank of the Loire River, its 10 hectares of vines from the Sauvignon grape are planted on the south-west side of the hill from the village of Saint Andelain, where the soils are mainly clay and limestone from the Kimmeridgian era.

Vinification is done with minimal intervention, producing fine expressions of this classic terroir with unique purity and clarity. The resulting wines display a fruity, floral, and intensive minerality.

As a young vigneron who has taken the reins at the Domaine du Buchot, his wines express a vibrant, elegant, balanced character, and he is achieving new heights in the appellation.
