Located high in the hills at the heart of the historic Solutré and Vergisson site, in southern Burgundy, the vineyards stretch over 6 hectares in two appellations: Pouilly Fuissé and Saint-Veran. These are handcrafted wines by Gilles who painstakingly manages the vineyard and winemaking himself.

The unique soils are mainly made up of clay-limestone (Jurassic, Mesozoic Era), dating back between 150 to 180 million years. This is what makes White Burgundy so pure, special, and zippy in the mouth. The vineyard is 25+ years old.

This wine is certified organic and no chemicals are used in the processing.

10 months in French oak (no new oak)

Reviews

The 2016 Pouilly Fuisse Terroir de Vergisson has a simple apple blossom and gunflint-scented bouquet that would benefit from a little more energy. The palate is fresh on the entry with a tang of dried orange peel and ginger, vibrant and harmonious in the glass with impressive weight and length on the finish. There is complexity interwoven into this Pouilly-Fuissé from start to finish. Simply outstanding and it comes highly recommended. ~92 WA

Full bodied and rich, this is a generous wine. Its richness and tropical-fruit character is balanced by intense acidity that cuts through and gives it a lift. Drink this ripe wine now. ~92 WE
