This high quality 20 hectare domaine is run by Jean-Michel Masson and his family who produce classic Pouilly-Fumé wines. They adopt a laissez faire approach both in the vineyard, where they do not use any pesticides and herbicides, and in the cellar, where they limit the use of sulphur and stabilise their wines as naturally as possible. The grapes used for the Villa Paulus are from vines grown on Kimmeridgian marl that has high organic matter content. Along with careful vineyard management and winemaking practices this yields a wine with excellent balance and minerality.
