Pouilly-Fumé ‘Cuvée Prestige les Bénédictins’ comes from the same site as ‘La Loges aux Moines’. We make it only in the best years, it is vinified separately in a buried concrete tank, and left on lees for at least a year, without temperature control, and a partial malolactic fermentation. It is thanks to the know-how of our ancestors that we obtain this magnificent wine, with vinification methods atypical in modern times.
