Masson Blondelet Pouilly Fume

Domaine Masson-Blondelet

Michelle and Jean-Michel Masson created Domaine Masson-Blondelet after marrying one another in 1975.  Both came from Loire winegrowing families and brought with them cru holdings in Pouilly Fume and Sancerre totaling 21 hectares.  

Three basic soil types exist in Pouilly-Fume – Kimmeridgian Marl, Flint, and Hard Limestone.  Because each of the domaine’s vineyards sit on one of these soil types, Masson-Blondelet vinifies and bottles each vineyard separately (Les Angelots, Villa Paulis, and Les Pierres de Pierre for Pouilly-Fumé and Thauvenay for Sancerre).

The seventh generation is now involved – Son Pierre-Francois manages the domaine’s vineyard work (organic philosophy), and daughter Melanie manages company sales and assists with winemaking (natural philosophy).  Total production is small, about 120,000 bottles per year.
