Producer Note
Domaine Gouffier owns five and a half hectares of vineyard in the villages of Fontaines and Mercurey in Côte Chalonnaise. The domain has been run by the Gouffier family for generations until Jerome Gouffier handed over the reins to his close friend Frédéric Gueugneau, formerly at La Chablisienne. Since 2011, Frédéric and oenologist Benoît Pagot have brought about a new style of winemaking to the domain. They follow an organic philosophy to create wines that are modern, approachable and affordable, but with all the style and panache of good Burgundy. They have created a collection of wines of outstanding originality, verve and spirit.


Vineyard
The vineyard is based in Fontaine, in the Côte Chalonnaise. The climate is continental, with warm summers and cold winters. The vineyard is in conversion to organic agriculture; the vines are cultivated using organic preparations and the use of chemical herbicides is strictly prohibited. The vines are carefully managed between the spring and summer months to ensure optimal conditions for healthy, mature grapes at harvest time; with strict debudding, leaf thinning and ploughing of the soil. The vines are grown in marly-chalk soils from the Jurassic period.


Winemaking
The Aligoté grapes were harvested in a healthy condition once they had achieved optimum maturity and were carefully selected in the cellar. The grapes were very delicately transferred via a conveyor belt directly to a stainless steel tank in order to retain the integrity of the fruit The grapes were slowly and very gently pressed to extract the juice. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks to preserve the pure fruit aromatics and to retain the freshness. 20% of the wine was then matured for 12 months in old French oak. Working in partnership with their cooper based in Cognac, since the 2013 vintage, Domaine Gouffier has been experimenting with using oak from the state forests of Fontaine, just a few miles from the vines, endeavouring to stay true to the local terroir.


Tasting Note
A delightfully crisp white wine with green apple flavours, a good weight from a touch of oak and with a wonderfully fresh, saline finish.
