Soil Specificity

The soils in Macon and the Côte Chalonnaise share some common characteristics - Jurassic limestone soils dominant. In some villages, some soils assemblages content a high level of clay while others are Jurassic assemblages where hard limestones and softer marls alternate. Variations in the Mâconnais landform has led to more diversity of soils like brown limestone, clayey, and sandy soils mixed with sandstone pebbles. Vines growing around Solutré are rooted in red marls that have been covered with limestone scree.

A Passionate Lineage

Domaine Frédéric Trouillet is located in Solutré, famous village just south of Macon. William Trouillet is the fourth generation looking after the growing family business. With the aim of respecting the environment and the terroirs on which the vines are planted, he doesn't do any treatments in the vineyard. Half of the production is vinified in steel tank and the rest in big wooden vat and oak barrels to avoid excess oak sensation. Everything is implemented to develop dry and fruity wines of great complexity.
