Since 1686 the Landrat-Guyollot family have been viticulturalists in the region of Nivers. Trade increased to Paris once the river Loire became navigable, from the 16th century onwards, with families such as the Landrat-Guyollot using dinghies (‘Les Rambardes’) to ferry wine to the capital. Sophie Landrat-Guyollot now represents its 10th generation; the last three generations to run the estate being female. A graduate of the Lycee Agricole in Beaune, Sophie began working at the estate in 1992. Since the 1970s the family have been bottling 100% of its production. Located in the village of Les Berthiers, close to St.Andelain, the family now owns 16.5ha across the villages of Tracy, St. Andelain and Pouilly-sur-Loire. Pouilly-Fume ‘La Rambarde’ is a classic blend of kimmeridgean marl, limestone and flint soils.
Pouilly-Fumé is a famous white Sauvignon Blanc appellation located on the right bank of the Loire River. A blend from across the Guyollot family domaine, this wine is herbal, grassy while also having plenty of richness. The rounded texture is lifted by attractive acidity, lovely spicy flavors and a final mineral texture.
