Nested in the village of Solutré-Pouilly, close to the famous Rock of Solutré, Domaine Des Gerbeaux is owned and run by Béatrice and Jean-Michel Drouin, who took over the domain in 1979. The Drouins have been making wine in Burgundy for over a century and Jean-Michel is producing some of the best and most distinctive wines in the Mâconnais region, all in very small quantities (barely 5,000 cases a year). Béatrice also comes from a vineyard owning family and between them they have a collection of over forty small parcels of vines spread around Mâcon, St. Véran, Pouilly, and Solutré: 15 acres altogether of prime vineyard sites. Harvesting is entirely by hand using small baskets, no pesticides or herbicides are used and fermentation temperature control is rigorous. These are generous, fruit-laden wines characterized by grapefruit and mineral flavors that can hold their own against much of the fancy Côte de Beaune. Jean-Michel is obsessive about every aspect of his winemaking. Viticulture is biodynamic in all but name.
