Wine Comments
Tressallier is a local grape which Florent Barichard has blended with Chardonnay. The wine was vinified in fibreglass tanks and bottled early. It’s light and fresh with noticeable acidity; the hallmark of Tressalier. As Florent explains, his wine is not pretentious and should be enjoyed straight away.

The Domaine
After ten years working on different appellations of the world (and three years spent in Vouvray with Vincent Carême), Florent Barichard decided to settle as winemaker in Saint Pourçain. The appellation is situated in the Allier, a département within the region of Auvergne which benefits from a diverse landscape and farming. Barichard's uncle and aunt (who sell their grapes to the coop) offered to 'share' almost half of their vineyard with Florent in order for him to start his own enterprise. With his experience while remaining humble, Florent quickly started to produce very nice wines in 2014. With winemakers like that, you have not heard the last of St. Pourçain!

Food Pairing
Good match with chicken, turkey but also delicious with fish and salads
