Domaine du Bouchot is a tiny domaine located in St. Andelain in the southern part of Pouilly Fumé, near the Loire River. Run by self-proclaimed organic activists, Antoine Gouffier and his wife Ilse Nel, they were the first domaine in the appellation to be certified organic and have also worked biodynamically in their vineyards and winery since 2008. Having started working in the vineyards in Pouilly Fumé during his childhood, Antoine travelled for a decade and dedicated himself to learning other methods from around the world and eventually worked with South Africa’s star Winemaker Duncan Savage. Returning to Pouilly Fumé with exciting new energy and modern views, Antoine and Ilse have produced a collection that possess fantastic energy and structure and display some spectacular innovative expressions of Pouilly Fume.
