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.
Vineyard
Mercurey is an appellation in the Côte Chalonnaise, where the red wines are
characterised by their deep colour and fuller body compared to their neighbouring
appellations. The ‘lieu dit’ or named vineyard of ‘Les Murgers’ is situated on rocky soils;
its Burgundian name of ‘Meurger’ comes from the heaps of stones that were removed
from the plot to enable vine planting. The east-facing Gouffier plot covers 1.2 hectares
with loamy topsoil, deeper layers of clay with the rocky component offering the vine
good drainage. The vineyard is cultivated using organic preparations, with ploughing,
pruning, desuckering and leaf thinning to maintain the high quality of the fruit. The
vines are pruned according to the ‘Guyot Poussard’ method, which respects the sapflow of the vine, reducing the serious consequences of pruning cuts and optimises the
vine’s health.
Winemaking
The hand-picked fruit was vinified with 30% whole bunches, enhancing the fruit and
aromatics, while adding freshness and structure. The wine was aged for 12 months in
French oak barrels of 228 litres, one third were new barrels which imparted structure
and length, while rounding out the tannins.
