Poulet & Fils
When I took over the family estate in 2004, I obviously inherited my ancestors’ land : this clay-limestone soil which was worked by so many generations and which first fed my ancestors and then provided them a living by the villages of Pontaix, Montlaur-en-Diois and Vercheny. This stony land became a vineyard thanks to the relentless labour of my grandfathers and my father Alain.
My father, who became a winegrower when he was 16, passed me on the vines of Muscat blanc à petits grains and Clairette that he had planted and worked for 50 years. I contributed with the integration of the iconic grapes of Châtillon-en-Diois (Gamay, Chardonnay, Aligoté) increasing the overall estate surface up to 23 hectares.
