DOMAINE DU CHALET POUILLY


In 1983 Henri Plumet passed over his estate to his daughter Marie-Agnès Plumet and her husband Bernard Léger. Dr Bernard Léger-Plumet graduated with a Medical Degree and started his career in Solutré-Pouilly as a “village doctor”. His wife Marie-Agnès Léger-Plumet earned her pharmaceutical degree in 1971. In order to further expand the family business, both Marie-Agnès and Dr Léger-Plumet gave up their medical careers and devoted all their time to the estate. Their passion and interest for wine grew stronger over the years, eventually leading them to change their career paths. In 1984, Dr. Léger-Plumet completed a degree in Oenology in Dijon, France. Marie-Agnès received her agricultural certificate in 2004. In 2008 Dr. Léger-Plumet was accepted as a member of the respectable and exclusive club of Burgundy wine enthusiast Confrérie des Chevaliers du Tastevin (The Brotherhood of Knights of Wine-Tasting Cups).

Since Bernard and Agnès took over the estate, it has been renovated and transformed: the family business has become more modern, the quality of the wines has been raised to new levels, and Domaine du Chalet Pouilly has earned worldwide recognition. Mr. and Mme. Léger-Plumet invested in state-of-the-art equipment and self-training in order to make the best wine possible while complying with the authentic wine-making traditions. Dr Bernard and Marie-Agnès Léger-Plumet continue to put their heart and soul into the development of Domaine Du Chalet Pouilly.
