Domaine Guerrin

Domaine Guerrin

Maurice and Nadine Guerrin have one the most spectacularly situated wine properties in France. Sitting above the village of Vergisson with vines falling away below them, the views of the far off Alps are framed by the Roche de Vergisson on the left and th The Guerrins have a small set-up - just 12 hectares of vines - but make exquisite wines. These are more nervy and Chablis-like than is the norm in the Mâconnais, partly due to the fact that the vineyards are high, at around 1,000 feet above sea level, and that Maurice Guerrin is keen on ageing his wines on fine lees, giving them a pleasant ‘fresh bread’ character. In the vineyard they follow the practice of lutte raisonnée and the approach to vinification is largely traditional.
