35 year old vines growing in two sites. Sur la Roche (confusingly!) has loose scree over limestone, while En Bille Folland, produces a broader wine from its deeper clay. The two sites blend well to produce a wine with steely, crunchy acidity and creamy, generous mid palate weight. Just lovely in 2019. Exceptional wine for the price.
About the Domaine
Guerrin are noted for their exceptional sites within Pouilly-Fuissé. Located between the Roc de Vergisson and Roc de Solutre, 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.
Son Bastien is now at the domaine full time and taking over from his father. He is working with natural yeast fermentations, and cutting back new oak, while extending elevage. These developments seem to be bearing fruit with a series of successful vintages. The future looks bright at Domaine Guerrin
