Domaine Drouin is in Vergisson, one of five villages which make up the famous appellation of Pouilly-Fuissé. It lies about 7 miles due west of Mâcon, and sits comfortably astride the saddle between the two great rocks of Vergisson and Solutré. The soil here is rich in the alkaline clay so loved by the Chardonnay grape. Its best vineyards are about 1200ft above sea level and face northwest, thus making the wines from Vergisson more refreshing by adding that extra dash of acidity, so vital to the balance of good wine.
The Drouin family have been winemakers in Vergisson for three generations. Thierry Drouin farms 15 acres of vines: 10 for Pouilly-Fuissé, and 5 for Mâcon, both red and white. His winemaking combines the best of traditional methods with contemporary expertise. Thierry's wines regularly win awards and many wine experts have long advocated their merits.
