Les Maison Brûlées is located in Pouillé in the Loire Valley. Founded by Michel and Beatrice Augé, it was one of the very first biodynamic cooperatives in France. Today it is run by Paul and Corinne Gillet who are originally from Alsace. The domaine is certified demiter and is spread over nine hectares, of which 6 are vineyards planted to Gamay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Pineau d'Aunis, Côt, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Menu Pineau and Chardonnay. The soils consist of flint and clay, with calcareous subsoils. The grapes are vinified with their natural yeasts, and the fermentations are slow, giving complexity to the wines. The wines are not filtered, and are bottled by gravity.
