CHATEAU DE VERGISSON MIXED CASE
Stephanie Saumaize and Pierre Laroche created the Domaine du Chateau de Vergisson in 2012, and were soon turning heads in Pouilly-Fuisse and the Maconnais. The young couple are from two different wine families, Stephanie from Solutre and Pierre from Vergisson, villages that sit at the base of the two dominant limestone outcrops that mark both the terrain and the terroir of Pouilly-Fuisse.
And the Pouilly-Fuisse wine that comes from each of these two zones are as different as night and day. Rather like in Chablis, with the left-bank and right-bank terroir.
So here are two wines, one from Stephanie's part of the valley, and the other from Pierre's end that offer you a master-class in the terroir of Pouilly-Fuisse.

Chateau de Vergisson Pouilly-Fuisse 2020
These are vines from Stephanie’s part of the valley, assembled from several parcels from the base of the rock at Solutré. This is classic Pouilly-Fuisse. Pure gold, with lemon-drop fruit, a touch of tannin to give it structure, and lovely acidity. So round and balanced, you want to chew it.
Château de Vergisson Pouilly-Fuisse ‘Sur la Roche’ 2019
These are vines from Pierre’s end of the valley, on the slopes of the Vergisson outcrop. The vines, almost 100 years old, were planted by Pierre’s great-grandfather. And old vines on a parcel like ‘Sur la Roche’ give a depth and concentration that is hard to believe. Elegance, tension, freshness, notes of oysters and the sea, iodine. And of course the minerality carries the finish on forever. Outstanding.
