    Winery Overview

    André Figeat represents the sixth generation of père et fils to oversee this family domaine. Expertly trained by his father, Edmond, he tends vineyards predominantly planted to Sauvignon in diverse terroirs of the commune of Pouilly-sur-Loire and on the neighboring Côte du Nozet. Like most successful vignerons, the Figeats cut no corners in their vineyards. In the modern cellar, temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks are used for both fermentation and aging to capture and preserve the Sauvignon character of each Pouilly-Fumé terroir. Domaine Figeat produces two classic, but quite different Pouilly-Fumés: Les Chaumiennes and Côte du Nozet (near La Doucette). In exceptional vintages, the Figeats also produce a prestige cuvée from their oldest vine parcel they call Les Chailloux, which is comprised of flinty silex soil with large stones. In 2019, André’s daughter Anne-Sophie joined the family business after studying chemistry and wine.
