Our Cuvée Millerandée is a selection of our older vines in Les Quarts (70+ years old). The word Millerandé describes grapes whose natural fertilization partly failed due to the vine's old age and also to the nature of the soil ad sub-soil found on parts of the Quarts. Indeed the Millerandées berries are so small that they concentrate sugars, organic acids and aroma precursors. As in the case of our Pouilly-Vinzelles Climat Les Quarts, we strongly advise you to try one particularly successful match with food: Poulet de Bresse à la Crème accompagné de Trompettes de la mort, a regional free-range chicken cooked in a creamy sauce with horns of plenty mushrooms...
The 2018 Pouilly-Vinzelles Les Quarts Cuvée Millerandée opens in the glass with notes of orange oil, crisp orchard fruit, blanched almonds, pear and honeysuckle. Medium to full-bodied, deep and satiny, it's ample and layered, with lively acids and an attractively seamless profile. This isn't the most muscular Cuvée Millerandée that the Bret Brothers have produced, but it must number among the most charming.
