Tasting Note
The Pouilly-Vinzelles "En Paradis" 2011 reveals a lovely nose of exotic fruits, particularly mango, accompanied by hints of brioche. In the mouth it is ample and round, with aromas of yellow fruits and peppery notes on the finish.

Vinification
Traditional in stainless steel vats, temperature controlled with complete malolactic fermentation

Description
Already known to the Romans, Vinzelles takes its name from the latin vincella which means small vine. The distinctive feature of the village of Vinzelles is the presence of two "châteaux" separated by just a few metres: a fortified castle from the 11th century and the other from the 13th and 17th centuries. From 50 hectares (122 acres) of essentially south, south-east facing vineyards, the appellation of Pouilly-Vinzelles encompasses the villages of Vinzelles and Loché. Continuing from the predominantly limestone slopes of Chaintré and Fuissé, the vineyards of Pouilly-Vinzelles are exclusively planted with Chardonnay and closely resemble those wines from its neighbour Pouilly-Fuissé.
