The Domaine Guerrin: a philosophy Passionate, respectful and responsible
We apply winegrowing methods that respect the environment. This is painstaking work, often manual, because the production of quality grapes is essential to our quest for the ultimate expression of terroir. Our objective is to obtain wines that express primarily finesse, purity and balance.
Working the soil is a key step, because it encourages the roots to grow deeper and to draw on the unique combination of mineral elements in each terroir.
Modest yields and manual thinning are used to optimize conditions for the health and maturity of the fruit.
Harvesting is 90% manual, followed by slow, natural vinification, mostly done using indigenous yeasts found naturally on the grapes, which allows us to preserve all the flavor potential of the juice.
The wines are aged on the lees, often in oak barrels, for between 11 to 12 months depending on the vintage and the specificity of the terroir.
In order to have a dynamic approach on the estate, we are continually carrying out research and experimenting with new techniques. The aim is to constantly improve quality, and to continue to fashion wines of character whilst preserving the essence of our terroir.
