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 was a challenging vintage with spells of hail, frost and mildew. However, warm
weather throughout the latter part of the growing cycle resulted in a harvest which
winemaker Frédéric has called a classic vintage, with the wines showing good
balance between sugar and acidity.


Vineyard
The vineyard is situated in the heart of the AOC Bouzeron in the Côte Chalonnaise.
The east-facing plot is planted with an Aligoté strain called ‘Golden’, the vines are
low yielding and produce exceptionally aromatic grapes. The climate is continental,
with warm summers and cold winters and excellent diurnal temperature differences.
The vineyard is cultivated using organic preparations and the use of chemical
herbicides is strictly prohibited. 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.


Winemaking
The Aligoté grapes were harvested in a healthy condition once they had achieved
optimum maturity and were carefully selected in the cellar. The grapes were very
delicately transferred via a conveyor belt directly to French oak barrels of 228 to 300
litres, of which 25% were new. Fermentation and ageing took place in the barrels,
with bâtonnage to impart texture and complexity. Working in partnership with their
cooper based in Cognac, since the 2013 vintage Gouffier has been experimenting
with using oak from the state forests of Fontaine, just a few miles from the vines,
endeavouring to stay true to the local terroir.
