The estate was created in 1926, in the heart of the village of Vergisson. Today the 4th generation of the family Guerrin cultivates their terroir with the same passion and rigour as their great-grandparents before them. The estate covers a total area of 14 hectares split between more than 35 small plots. This exceptional diversity of terroirs gives each of their wines a very distinct character.

A captivating bouquet of white peach, citrus blossom, and a hint of almond melds effortlessly with the wine's subtle oak influence. The palate is marked by a refined balance of fruit, minerality, and delicate oak integration. As it evolves, the wine reveals flavours of nectarine, lemon zest, and a touch of brioche, culminating in an elegant, satisfying finish.

This Pouilly Fuisse 'Vieilles Vignes' shines when paired with dishes that emphasize its complexity and depth, such as pan-seared sea bass with a lemon herb sauce, chicken and wild mushroom fricassée, or a grilled vegetable and goat cheese tart. Its harmonious character also makes it a delightful choice for sipping as an aperitif.

Hailing from a prime location on the slopes of the Roche de Vergisson, this wine benefits from the fresh, mineral character imparted by the east winds. The careful balance of flavours, achieved through lees-stirring (batonnage) and barrel-ageing, showcases the essence of Pouilly-Fuissé in this outstanding expression.
