Capucin’s Manor

Originally owned by the Capuchin friar Luillier, this manor house with its Italian colonnades, cellars and walled in vineyards was bought by Antoine Forest in the twentieth century, great grandfather of Chloé Bayon, who is the president of the Pouilly-Fuissé union of producers. This vineyard had been run by share-croppers until Chloé decided to study wine making and oenology in order to run the business herself and to devote her time to the vine and her wine. Amongst the blends is the Manoir du Capucin and the Clos de la Maison which, according to the Gault and Millau guidebook “a true success with a taste of aniseed and soft liquorice in the mouth”.
