Vergisson's Pouilly-Fuissé Sur La Roche yields from one of the top single vineyards of the appellation sited in Vergisson (soon to be classified as premier cru), beneath the crest of the famous Rock of Solutré.
This is the coolest terroir of Puilly-Fuissé combined with one of the steepest and sunniest exposures. The Sur La Roche is Vergisson's top cuvée, entirely vinified and raised in oak barrel.
Domaine du Château de Vergisson is a young and exciting domaine created by the partnership of locals Pierre Desroches and Stéphanie Daumaize, both schooled in oenology at the Lycée Viticole de Davayé close by.
Intense ripe aromas, closed but bursting with exuberance behind its smoky saline minerality and creamy surface note of Comice pear. Very concentrated palate, beautifully fresh and mineral with great depth and spice, leading to a long creamy and mineral-structured development, and lifted fruit, flowers and spice in the finish.
