André Figeat represents the sixth generation of père et fils to oversee this family domaine. Expertly trained by his father, Edmond, he tends almost 30 acres of vines (predominantly planted to Sauvignon) in diverse terroirs of the commune of Pouilly-sur-Loire and on the neighboring Côte du Nozet. Like most successful vignerons, the Figeats cut no corners in their vineyards. They employ a rigorous, year-round natural regimen, relying on the savoir-faire of their forefathers rather than chemical herbicides, pesticides and fungicides. In the modern cellar, temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks are used for both fermentation and aging to capture and preserve the Sauvignon character of each Pouilly-Fumé terroir.
The Figeat vineyards consist of clay, sandy, and limestone soils. The result is a delicious Sauvignon Blanc with mild grapefruit and apple flavors, finishing with the distinctive flinty flavors. The perfect wine for goat cheese.
