Grape variety: Chardonnay
An assemblage of three parcels of grapes with different soils from Saint-Véran. Relatively young grapes are used, but the plots used differ depending on the vintage. All harvested by hand and fermented in open wooden vats. Aging is done in barriques (some new barrels). Bottling after one year.
Freshness and beautiful acidity, slight oak and fresh fruit aroma. Plump taste and mellow mouthfeel.
Genius of white wine "Jean-Marie Guffin"
A Chardonnay expert who gets the highest rating every year in France's two most popular magazines. The Negothian section, which makes use of its genius wine making, is also highly rated. A typical Macon that seems to stop by for a meal.
