2018 Macon les Bruyeres

This red wine from Macon has intense aromas of fresh fruit like raspberries and cherries and a little hint of spice. On the palate you will have the same red fruits and a nice freshness. The structure of this wine is very subtile without any agressive tannins. It is a very easy drinkable wine that will perfectly go with your charcuteries or grilled meat.

Should be drunk in it’s first 5 years to get the full expression of the fruit.

The producer

Domaine Guerrin

Respect the vine, enjoy the wine, that is the Domaine Guerrin & Fils ethos.

At the heart of a protected natural site between the Roche de Solutré and the Roche de Vergisson in southern Burgundy, just to the west of Mâcon, is the village of Vergisson where our wine estate first took root. Created in 1926, the estate already produced its own wines from the terroir today known as "The Maréchaude" or "The Crays" and today we are the 4th generation of winemakers to cultivate the land and continue this passion and rigor for the production of quality wines.

Our vines are split between more than 35 limestone plots making up a total area of 14 hectares, completing a patchwork of different soil types that offer an exceptional diversity of terroirs. This in particular gives each of our wines their truly distinctive character.

We produce three appellations in total Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran, Macon-Vergisson and our hands-on, artisanal approach to viticulture is guided by our constant desire to produce wines of quality and character. As we always say, respect the vine, enjoy the wine.
