Domain: Guffens Heynen

Our second Wine of the Week hails from distinguished Mâconnais producer and long standing iDealwine partner Domaine Guffens-Heynen. Winemaker extraordinaire Jean-Marie Guffens knows a thing or two about Chardonnay; his wines possess rare concentration and sublime minerality.

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.

What the guides say...

  • La Revue du vin de France
One of the best French wines is produced by a couple of Belgians. Maine and Jean-Marie Guffens-Heynen came to the Mâconnais in 1976. Today, the domain has vines in Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran and Mâcon-Villages. Jean-Marie Guffens-Heynen is also a negociant for Maison Verget. The wines from this domain are revered by white wine enthusiasts. Principally sold at export, they are difficult to find, particularly the Mâcon Premier Jus de Chavigne and the Pouilly-Fuissé C. C.
RVF
  • Bettane & Desseauve
While he has inspired many winemakers in the Mâconnais, still today, Jean-Marie Guffens is the only artist able to produce a simple Mâcon worthy to rub shoulders with the finest wines of the Côte d’Or […]. This unparalleled master of vinification continues to produce quantities which are still far too small for international demand.
