Domaine Manciat-Poncet

Chaintré, Burgundy • France

Marie-Pierre Manciat oversees this 12-hectare estate, originally the Manciat estate of Charnay and the Poncet estate from Vergisson. Historically, the wines were sold in bulk to negociants, but Marie-Pierre’s father, Claude, started bottling the wines himself in the early 1980s and established the estate as a leader for quality in the region.

That reputation lasts to this day. Marie-Pierre farms sustainably and still harvests by hand—a rarity in the Mâconnais. The grapes for the Pouilly-Fuissé La Roche are sourced near the Solutré cliffs in Vergisson. Marie-Pierre is not dogmatic, and the result of her winemaking is wines that are, first and foremost, meant to be drunk.
