STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The Guerrin’s estate dates from 1926 and can be found at the heart of the protected natural site between the Roche de Solutré and the Roche de Vergisson in southern Burgundy, just to the west of Mâcon. Today the fourth generation works a patchwork of 35 small vineyards spread over 15 hectares and various soil types. Respecting nature and farming sustainably with 90% of work done manually and fermenting with native yeasts are key to highlighting their excellent terroir. Read more.
The vineyard for this wine is clay and limestone based and south facing and it ripens early giving rich flavours which are captured by controlled fermentation in stainless steel before ageing for nine months on lees, which adds body and a creamy texture to the attractive peach and pear fruit with a touch of hazelnut and a clean citrus finish. Enjoy it with pork and chicken dishes but also salmon or tofu dishes.
