The distinguishing local grape variety is the Sacy, known in Saint-Pourçain as Tressallier. The variety is associated with the Yonne where it was at one time widely planted and rivaled the Chardonnay grape. Interestingly, historical references mention that the Sacy grape produced far better results in Saint-Pourçain than elsewhere. As in the Yonne, the Tressallier has been eclipsed in Saint-Pourçain by the Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. M. Barbara produces his white wine from a blend of 80% Chardonnay and 20% Tressallier. The Tressallier vines, which are naturally quite productive, are pruned to 7 or 8 bunches per vine and yield an average of 30h per hectare. Fermentation is carried out in temperature controlled stainless steel vats where the wine remains on its lees until bottling in the spring. Sustainable
