  • An ‘orange’ wine with subtle notes of stone fruit and candied citrus, complemented by mineral nuances. Fresh and vibrant, with a lovely rich mouthfeel. Remarkable saline and mouthwatering finish.

The vineyard is situated in the heart of the Cote Chalonnaise. The climate is continental, with warm summers and cold winters. The vineyard has been cultivated sustainably since 2011. The double Guyot trained 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.

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.
