Gouffier Cuvee Baudron Bourgogne Rouge 2019

A delicious Pinot Noir showing all the hallmarks of a
good red Burgundy, with a vibrant bouquet full of red
berries and delicate notes of spice, silky and intensely
flavoured.


Producer Note
Gouffier owns five and a half hectares of vineyard in the villages of Fontaines and
Mercurey in Côte Chalonnaise. Historically it was 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. They follow an organic
philosophy to create wines that are modern and approachable, but with all the style
and panache of good Burgundy. They have created a collection of wines of
outstanding originality, verve and spirit.


Vintage
2019 has been cited as an outstanding vintage and one of the best in recent years.
The dry, warm conditions produced low yields of impeccably balanced,
concentrated wines with refined freshness and remarkable purity. A mild winter was
followed by a chilly spring, with frosts affecting some areas. Cooler temperatures in
June resulted in uneven flowering and some millerandage in some vineyards.
However, temperatures soared in July and August with vines under hydric stress,
resulting in superb concentration and complexity of flavours.


Vineyard
The Pinot Noir grapes come from a parcel of vines in the Côte Chalonnaise, planted
in silty, chalky soils, which have excellent drainage properties. The vines are carefully
managed to ensure optimal conditions for healthy, mature grapes at harvest time;
with strict desuckering, leaf thinning and ploughing of the soil. The vines are pruned
according to the Guyot Poussard method, which respects the sap-flow of the vine,
reducing the serious consequences of pruning cuts and optimises the vine’s health.
The vineyards are managed respecting the environment and the biodiversity of the
vineyard. The grapes are hand-picked at optimal maturity.


Winemaking
This cuvée was made in honour of the Baudron family who owned the domain
before the Gouffier family, in the first half of the 20th century. The hand-harvested
grapes were vinified with 25% as whole bunches, which helped to impart structure.
The wine was matured in 228 litre French oak barrels, of which 25% were new. The
barrels came from forests in the centre of France.
