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.

The nose is a complex combination of apricot aromas with hints of white flowers and hazelnuts. Characterful and exceptionally well-balanced; on the palate it is almost delicate, with taut precision and chalky minerality. Slow fermentation takes place in French oak barrels, 20% new, followed by lees-ageing with regular batonnage.

A superb, rich white Burgundy meant for confits, crab, clam chowder, chicken escalope and creamy leek soup. 

From a unique site, high on the slopes of the Roche de Vergisson, on white limestone soils. The east winds imbue this wine with the fresh, mineral character which balances the hefty flavours derived from lees-stirring (batonnage) and barrel-age. This is Pouilly-Fuissé at its finest.
