The vineyard is based in Fontaines, in the Cote Chalonnaise, where the vines are grown at between 200 and 300 metres above sea level. The climate is typical for Burgundy: continental, with warm summers and cold winters. The soils are limestone-clay, which produces wines of great finesse and complexity. The vineyard has been sustainably farmed since 2011, with ploughing replacing weed killers and copper and sulphur treatments used only when required. The vines are carefully managed between the spring and summer months to ensure optimal conditions for healthy, mature grapes at harvest time; with pruning, strict de-budding and leaf thinning being undertaken by hand to reduce the yields. The vineyard is currently in conversion to organic status.

Gouffier owns five and a half hectares of vineyard in the villages of Fontaines and Mercurey in Cote Chalonnaise. Historically it was run by the Gouffier family for generations until Jerome Gouffier handed over the reins to his close friend Frederic Gueugneau, formerly at La Chablisienne. Since 2011, Frederic and oenologist Benoit 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.
