From three separate sites, all 50yr+ plantings on classic Vergisson terroir – which means limestone, with some altitude, giving the wine an extra dimension of freshness. 12 months in oak, 15% new. Round and supple, with rich fruit and satin-like texture, its well balanced by a fine line of acidity and finishes with a basket of stone fruits and white flowers.
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
