Chaintre was already well known in Roman times because of its strategic location on the North-South route near the Saone River. They built a very large Gallo-Roman village: the city of CANTRIACA, where the name Chaintre finds its origins. The surrounding hillsides being well exposed to a south-east light, they decided to plant vines there as early as the 3rd century. One this very site, in the 19th century, Monsieur Reyssie planted Chardonnay, turning the one of the Pouilly-Fuisse terroirs into a star. Comfortably rooted on its gentle slope, Clos Reyssie draws its strength and personality from the rich and deep clay residue of its terroir. Its fruit-filled, well-ripened personality enhances its smooth yellow peach and exotic fruit aromas.
