Product Description

The perfect introduction to Gilles Morat’s precision-winemaking is his basic Pouilly Fuissé AOC “Terroirs de Vergisson.” Vergisson’s vineyards are located on steep, amphitheater slopes between the famed rocks of Vergisson and Solutré, and are recognized as the appellation’s finest. Morat selects 100% Chardonnay grapes from several of his hillside Vergisson sites at 300-350 meters of altitude, each with different soils, for his first-level Pouilly Fuissé. For this cuvee, Morat ferments and ages the wine in 60% stainless steel tanks and 40% barrels, which are between 4 and 8 years old and hence, do not impart oaky flavors. Morat’s goal is to produce a wine that shows the intensity and purity characteristic of outstanding vineyards and winemaking, but which is also very accessible upon release for its expressive and vivid fruit. The wine captures the unique character of its Vergisson terroir: pure and fresh, green apple, citrus and peach flavors with a soft minerality, imparting finesse and length.
