Grown on south facing slopes, locally referred to as La Côte Rôtie (confusing hey?!) Soil here is shallow limestone, with vines close planted at 8,700 per hectare. Earliest plantings date back to 1959, with the youngest vines planted 1983. Fermented and raised in stainless only.
Aromatics of citrus pith, flint and almonds. A clear cut style, both in mouthfeel and fruit delivery. A straight line of citrus and peach fruit, it’s a wine with energy, nutty complexity, and a gentle mineral architecture on the finish of flint and stone.
Domaine Gilles Morat / Burgundy
Pure Pure Pouilly-Fuissé From A Hidden Jewel Of Burgundy
Vergisson is a small but dramatic village, nestled in the hills some 400 meters high in the Mâcon. A sweeping bowl of several kilometres across, it is punctuated by two striking rocky outcrops, with vines clinging to the steep hills underneath. It is here that Gilles Morat and wife Joëlle farm their six hectares of Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint Véran vines. Viticulture is organic with a focus on hands on, exceptional vineyard management, raising pure and pristine Chardonnay from this drop dead gorgeous, hidden nook of Burgundy.
