Domaine Pascal PAUGET


 
Pascal made a fortuitous switch in his professional life in 1991 when he left the world of motorcycles and took over the tiny 1 acre family estate following a course in viticulture and oenology . In 1992 he bought a 3 acre plot of gamay and then undertook extensive plantations while becoming the farmer for the vineyards in Préty – the sole Burgundian growth lying to the east of the Saône . Nowadays the Domaine comprises a respectable 15 acres spread over 5 different terroirs .

The town of Tournus has been famous for its vines for centuries and indeed in the middle ages the name was better known than certain prestigious Cote d Or growths . It constitutes the first Gateway to the South on account of the mix of oceanic , continental and Mediterranean influences . Against this back drop , Pascal selected the plots for plantation with particular regard to orientation , altitude , drainage and of course the geological structure . This was also the springboard to an uncertified organic approach in the vineyards : ploughing to force roots downward , no herbicides or pesticides and enhanced microflora in the soil .
All sprays and treatments are carried out with certified organic products

In 2006 , the Paugets moved to the village of Ozenay and built a brand new ecological winery where the cellar has near perfect humidity and temperature. The chardonnay is pruned in the Guyot manner while the yield-limiting Cordon de Royat is used for the Pinot Noirs and Gamays . All suckers and double shoots are eliminated and all sprays and treatments are carried out with certified Agriculture Biologique products .

Vinification : grapes are manually picked The Macon Chardonnay and Macon whites are pressed immediately after picking in a gentle pneumatic press . A 24 – 36 hour cold settling period follows prior to removal to tanks or casks where fermentation lasts several weeks or even months . The wines then mature on fine lees which retains great freshness . Bottling usually takes place before the next Summer and is carried out with the Domaine’s own equipment .
