Gouffier Cuvee Madeleine Bourgogne Blanc 2020

A classic and complex white Burgundy, revealing rich
exotic fruit aromas with delicate hints of vanilla spice and
notes of macademia nuts, textured with beautiful
minerality on the long finish.
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
The Chardonnay grapes come from a parcel of vines planted in silty, clayey soils, which
have excellent water retention properties, nourishing the vines during the warm
summers. 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 pays tribute to Mademoiselle Madeleine Gouffier, often called ‘Coco’ who
ran the Domaine Gouffier for nearly 50 years. The wine was matured in French oak
barrels of 228 litres for 12 months, of which 20% were new oak.
