History

Independent growers from father to son at Mareuil-sur-Aÿ since 1947.

"My grandfather, Roger, founded Champagne R. Pouillon in 1947, and my father James did an incredible job of developing the Domaine. Now I am proud to carry this responsibility in my turn, proud of this mark left in the earth, proud to be able to create wines in my own image and share them with people that love them." – Fabrice Pouillon

Vineyards

36 parcels of vines, each with their own very definite characters, dispersed over 6.5 hectares of the finest terroirs in Champagne: Ay Grand Cru, Mareuil-sur-Ay, Mutigny, Epernay…

The ploughing and work on the vineyards are done with the loyal horse of Pouillon family, Tango. Tango’s slow and steady pace allows the soils to be tilled perfectly, even on the steepest of slopes..

Regular tilling, preservation of parcel ecosystems, use of natural farm compost. We believe that living wines can only come from living soils.

Respect for the vines’ biological rhythms, short pruning, restricted yields. We believe that the grapes should concentrate a maximum of the mineral elements of the terroir.

Hand-picking into small crates, waiting until the grapes have achieved full aromatic maturity. We believe that there is a key moment when all the mineral elements, the building blocks of aromas, have transited from the terroir to the grapes.

Winemaking

We intervene in the winemaking process as little as possible. Fermentation is induced by native yeasts that are naturally present on the clusters. A second, malolactic, fermentation brings suppleness and complexity to our wines.

Oak barrels, terracotta or enamel-lined vats: we adapt our maturing methods to each terroir to attain their best expression and confer structure and complexity on our champagnes.

It is at a depth of 15 meters, within the cool tranquility of our cellars, that our champagnes acquire all their aromatic intricacy.
