Domaine du Chalet Pouilly practices viticulture methods that focus on an utmost respect for terroir. Minimal intervention during the ripening process is often challenging but rewarding at the same time, as it sets off the development of the unique flavors and aromas of these wines.

The estate produces Chardonnay from the appellations of Pouilly-Fuissé Premier Cru, Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran, and Mâcon-Solutré.
