Founded in 1947 by Roger Pouillon, Champagne R. Pouillon et Fils were dedicated Growers from the beginning. Fabrice Pouillon continues to build on what his father and grandfather created, crafting unique and artisanal Champagnes.
Owning 6.5ha of land across Ay Grand Cru, the Vallee de la Marne and Montagne de Reims, Fabrice creates expressive wines that are vibrantly aromatic. Dedicated to the vitality, energy and health of his vineyards, he began the conversion to organics in 2003 and today also incorporates biodynamic principles.
Tradition is key in the winery: the handpicked grapes are pressed in the traditional wooden press, in the time-honoured way begun by Fabrice’s grandfather, and each of the 36 vine parcels are vinified separately to focus on the grapes’ origin. The wines age in a combination of older oak demi-muids and barriques, where everything undergoes malolactic fermentation. Reserve wines are aged for up to 18 months in wooden tanks and there is a ‘solera’ system in operation, with wines dating back to the late 1990s.
