    Cuvée presentation

    Intense, mineral and deep, with length on the palate, this Pouilly-Fuissé is produced by one of the emblematic growers of the Mâcon region. Jean-Marie Guffens initially matures his wine in barrels (1/4 new wood) before refining this maturation process in concrete vats. Tasting reveals a bouquet of chalky, smoky notes along with fruity touches of white fruit, citrus and exotic fruits. The palate is full bodied and indulgent, and features a saline, mineral character. This remarkable wine is made to accompany gourmet dishes, and to be kept for at least a year in the cellar.

    Information about domain Guffens Heynen

    After studying a year in France in 1976, Maine and Jean-Marie Guffens-Heynen never returned to their native Flanders. Enchanted by the Burgundy vineyard and the land of Vergisson so dear to Lamartine, they cast aside their artistic impulses for the viticulture school of Mâcon. An internship with a producer and here they are now, three years later, at the head of a small vineyard in Pierreclos. Domaine Guffens-Heynen was born. In 1990, the couple decided to expand their activities and create the Verget trading house in Sologny. Breaking with the Burgundian traditions, they would be the first to buy white grapes from the best domaines of Mâconnais, Côte d'Or and Chablisien. The wines are then vinified, aged and then marketed under their own name; excluding trading, the Domaine Guffens also produces Mâcon-Pierreclos, Saint-Véran and Pouilly-Fuissé, and since 1997, VDP of the Vaucluse of the Domaine des Tourettes. Against all odds, these "philistines" mastered the art of Chardonnay, respected by all (including the greatest of the Côte de Beaune), praised by critics, sought after by connoisseurs. The wines from the Mâconnais and the Luberon have acquired a solid reputation; cuvées polished like diamonds, always very pure, and both rich and tense.
