The Château can trace its origins back to the 13th century. Originally built as a home for the Lord of Fuissé, it is now one of the oldest buildings in the Burgundy village.
The Château took the name Vitallis towards the start of 19th century when Monsieur Ange Henry Vitallis inherited the property from his parents. The former owner bequeathed his name to the property along with his coat of arms, which decorates the front gate to this day.
They have 27 acres in Pouilly, 5 acres in Fuisse, 5 acres in Macon Fuisse, 2 1/2 acres in St Veran and 1 acre in Macon Vinzelles
The estate is known for its old vines, some of which are over 65 years old. The vineyards are situated on Southeast facing slopes at an altitude of 750 to 900 feet in the villages of Fuisse and Solutre. Denis tells us "All our vineyards are grassed over for the last 10 years to limit erosion and especially to control our yields.
A family-run wine estate since 1835, located at the foot of the iconic Rock of Solutré, Château Vitalis is proudly and firmly rooted in Burgundy. Driven by their passion and their pursuit of excellence, Denis Dutron and his son Maxime create wines of character that are true to the unique identity of their exceptional terroir. This father and son team put their name to six different AOP wines in the Mâcon-Vinzelles, Mâcon-Fuissé, Saint-Véran and Pouilly-Fuissé appellations.
