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.

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.
