A world class and limited production red wine made from Syrah 85% and Mavrodaphne 15%. After harvest, fermentation and color extraction take place in an open stainless steel vat. In order to achieve the desired color and flavor, pumping over is performed ever four hours for ten days. Once fermentation is complete, it undergoes malolactic fermentation. Once complete, the wine is transferred to French oak barrels, where the wine is left to mature for seven months. The resulting wine is a complex Syrah with a deep purple color that is almost black when the wine is young. Typical characteristics of Syrah, such as spice and pepper are detected almost instantly on the nose. The small amount of Mavrodaphne in this wine can be detected on the nose with a softness that rounds out the spiciness of the Syrah.
Our Domaine is located in Vergisson, a picturesque village perched up high in the hills at the heart of the historic Solutre and Vergisson site, in southern Burgundy. The vineyards stretch over 6 hectares in two appellations: Pouilly Fuisse and Saint-Veran.
Our artisanal approach to viticulture allows us to use ecological and natural methods of cultivation. Working the soil is an integral part of our labour, manual work is valued and the harvest is carried out by hand.
Our painstaking work, from cultivation in the vineyards to aging in the cellars, results in pure, rich wines of character, reflecting the terroirs of Vergisson.
The Domaine produces four wines from Pouilly-Fuisse and one from Saint-Veran.
