Roger Pouillon had been selling his grapes to a negociant.
But in 1947, he decided to make his own Champagne from a small parcel he owned in the French village of Mutigny. With the help of Louis Baulant (his uncle and a famous oenologist), he learned the art of vinification. As his passion for the craft grew, he decided to create and sell his own brand: Champagne R. Pouillon.
Today, James and Fabrice Pouillon believe in sustainable agriculture to care for their vineyards, favoring certified organic products, herbal infusions and compost. Grass is allowed to grow between the grapevine rows, and the earth is turned periodically to encourage bacterial proliferation and diversity — which eventually is reflected in the expression of the terroir in the Champagne.
