Domaine GUERRIN

Vergisson

Bastien Guerrin continues to take over wine making from his father here, adding a little more freshness to Guerrin’s already fine wines.

Background

Guerrin is noted for his exceptional sites of Pouilly-Fuissé located between the Roc de Vergisson and Roc de Solutre, famous as the site were the local’s ancestors would drive wild horses over the edge, so they could be safely harvested below. Having spent a Saturday night in these parts one can’t blame them for seeking their fun where they can get it. Happily, Guerrin is too busy making great wines to need such distractions. The climate here, south of the Cote d’Or is a warmer and sunnier and can give blowsy wines. The quality factor at Domaine Guerrin is their holdings. Several of their plots benefit from relative altitude (up to 400m) and rocky limestone soils which add minerality and structure to firm ripe fruit flavours.  The Domaine also makes an excellent single vineyard St Veran.

Current Vintages

White WinesVintage
A blend of two terroirs. ‘Sur la Roche’ is mainly limestone, high on the slope at 300m, and ‘En Bille Folland’ which is lower and has more clay in the soil. The resulting wine is beautifully balanced between minerality and fruit. Superb value here.
2016/17
Produced from several different plots of vines, 45 years old or more. All the plots sit on the classic clay-limestone soils of Vergisson.
2015/16
