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
Mild weather throughout the 2018 season enabled the healthy grapes to reach
good ripeness levels. The white grapes are well balanced, with good fruit and a fine
tension.


Vineyard
The vines are grown in the 1er Cru vineyard of Rabourcé, in AOC Rully, a northern
commune of the Côte Chalonnaise. The soils are limestone which produces elegant
wines. The climate is continental, with warm summers, 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.


Wine making
The Chardonnay grapes were hand-picked at optimum maturity and carefully
selected in the cellar. The grapes were very delicately transferred via a conveyor belt
directly to French oak barrels of 228 to 400 litres, of which 25% were new, in order to
preserve the mineral character. Fermentation took place in the barrel with natural
yeast at 20°C. The wine was aged for 12 months in barrel without lees stirring.
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.


Tasting Note
Citrus aromas dominate the bouquet complemented by delicate hints of toasty
spice. Layers of flavour deliver citrus fruit complemented by white floral notes on the
smooth and beautifully fresh palate, finishing on a mineral note.
