Wine Region: France - Burgundy - Macon Villages, Pouilly Fuisse, Saint Veran
Domaine Michel Delorme was founded in 1820 and is located in Vergisson, a very small traditionally winegrowing village in South Burgundy, 10 km from Mâcon and famous for its "Roche" (rock).
The monks from Cluny started the winegrowing tradition centuries ago.
The Domaine has been owned by the same family for generations. 17th century files with the name of Delorme were found mentioning the winegrowing activity.
The vineyard is composed of 4.3 hectares (10.6 acres) of land. The breakdown is 3.9 hectares of Pouilly-Fuissé and 0.4 hectare of Saint-Véran. Approximately 60% of his production is sold in bottle and 40% sold in bulk to negoce. Production is about 2,400 bottles of Saint-Véran (200 cases) and 16,000 bottles of Pouilly-Fuissé (1,333 cases). The vineyards are cultivated on slopes around the Rock of Vergisson, with a south-southeast exposure. Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint-Véran wines are both 100 % made from the little golden-seeded Chardonnay grape.
