Domaine des Gerbeauxresults 1-1 of 1
Domaine des Gerbeaux is a small estate created in 1896 by Jean-Michel Drouin’s grandfather Jacques Charvet, thus the high end cuvee in his honor. Domaine des Gerbeaux was created by his son Xavier, the 5th generation of winemakers within the family. An estate of 17 acres located in the village of Solutre, dependent of the commune of Fuisse and the small village of Pouilly. The average age of the vines is between 35 and 45 years old with parcels as old as 90 years. The main part of the estate is in the appellation Pouilly-Fuisse with 12 acres. A small parcel is in Saint Veran and the rest is in Macon Village, with the addition of some common vines. The vineyards have several exposures:South/Southeast, East and Northern, mainly on hillsides with up to 40% inclination. The estate is farmed organically following traditional methods. Harvests are done by hand, in small lots, and are received in temperature controlled rooms. The vinification and aging are done in a temperature controlled environment. Most of the wines are aged in French oak barrels which are renewed at 20% every year with a 7 to 8 years cycle. The top cuvees are aged for up to 18 months. The vineyards are characterized with many micro-climates, typical of the region of Solutre. The various climates of the region are: • Le Clos • La Mure • Les Gerbeaux • En Servy • Les Champs Roux • Les Chailloux • Les Bouthieres • The famous climate of Pouilly with Fuisse and its chalky soils Jean-Michel Drouin, owner and winemaker, controls his yields in the vineyards with a very short cut in “Guyot”. Harvests are done at prime maturity with balanced alcohol and acidity producing wines with finesse and freshness. Domaine des Gerbeaux, which has been regularly awarded for more than a decade with a few Decanter selections, applies passion, a constant drive for perfection, and innovation in their winemaking process to bring us wines of exceptional quality, often superior to its neighbor in northern Burgundy, for a fraction of the price.
