Paul Corneau

Winegrower – gardener in Pouilly-Sur-Loire since 1977 !

Pouilly-Fumé

HISTORY

From 1977

 

Domaine Paul Corneau is located in the small winegrower hamlet of Bouchot in Pouilly- Sur-Loire. Paul started his activities with 5ha he inherited from his family in 1977.

Mme and Mr Corneau then completed the diversity of their terroirs by enlarging their vine plots, buying 8ha in Pouilly. Passionate and exigent winegrowers they considered their vineyard as their ‘garden’, giving the best attention to each detail and respecting their terroirs.

2015

In 2015, the domaine Paul Corneau joined Les Vignobles Villebois family.

We perpetuate the values of excellence, rigor and care that the Corneau family infused in their wines and their domaine. Every day, we do everything we can to preserve Paul’s work.

Today

 

Our wines are distributed in numerous wine shops and restaurants in France, Europe and Asia.

We value and keep on using the know-hows learned alongside Paul and honour his philosophy :

« I consider my vineyard as my garden, each vine is unique and needs a special care, no matter how much time and energy it takes from me. »

The vineyard and terroirs

The whole 13ha45 vineyard of the domaine grows Sauvignon blanc variety (the only authorized variety in Pouilly-Fumé appellation). Our vines are planted on the locations of Pouilly-sur-Loire (11ha30) and Saint-Andelain (2ha15), in the heart of the Pouilly-Fumé appellation. Rooted in and around the historic Chantalouette hamlet in Pouilly-sur-Loire, the vineyard is equally growing on ‘compact fine-grained limestone of the Barrois’ (Portlandian) and ‘small oysters marls’ (Kimméridgian) soils.

The legendary complementarity of those two soils is remarkable. Producing expressive wines, with a generous fruity profile and a great length. The greater part of the vineyard is exposed South-South East as a third is exposed West, facing the Loire, the royal river.
