2016 POUILLY-FUISSÉ, Sur La Roche, Morat. BurgundyOrganic
Sur la Roche is the most famous vineyard in Vergisson, high up on the south-east facing slopes. It always makes a relatively fine, 'mineral' style.
"Gilles Morat was born into a wine family in the now very fashionable village of Vergisson in the heart of the Mâconnais and in 1997 took over a share of the family business. He added to this both by buying new vineyards and setting up rental contracts and a few years later, when the domaine had reached a certain size, his wife, Joëlle, joined the operation. Today, with 6 hectares of vines, mainly Pouilly-Fuissé but also a little Saint-Véran, the two are very much a team. Although small recent vintages have made supplying the growing demand for their wines virtually impossible, they are generally happy to maintain a small, artisanal approach, which allows them to be so quality driven. They know their vines like the backs of their hands and can adapt their work in the vineyards in a very micro-managed way, carrying out work or treatment only where necessary. The domaine is organic and yields are kept low, naturally. 'If Pouilly-Fuissé can be said to have superstars, then Gilles Morat would certainly count as one.' The Wall Street Journal, July 2010"
