2 hectares of vines in the commune of Leynes, growing at around 200ms. A vineyard facing south south-west, which ripens early. The clay is deep here and the site gives a wine with a lifted, floral and blossom scented nose and deep, ripe fruit with sun kissed Mâconnais style.
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
