"Juliette et les Vieilles de Chavigne"
"The "Tri de Chavigne" and "Juliette et les Vieilles" are extremely concentrated and yet have almost record acidity because of the final concentration. They are both among the best I have made, the former more taut, the latter richer." J.M Guffens
Chavigne is a 3.3 hectare plot on the top of the hillside planted with Chardonnay vines ranging in age from 10 to 80 years. An absolute reference in the Mâconnais, Jean-Marie Guffens is a gifted winemaker who is well known for having raised his white wines to the level of the greatest crus of the Côte de Beaune. These wines vibrate to the rhythm of his deep convictions for an aesthetic viticulture. Each of the estate's cuvées is a perfect mineral translation of the soil.

The Domain Guffens-Heynen
The history of the Guffens-Heynen estate began in 1976 when the young couple decided to settle in the Mâconnais after living in Flanders. In 1979, Jean-Marie Guffens acquired a few plots of land to highlight what he had learned previously and let his instinct guide him
The wines were soon noticed by the greatest critics who highlighted his performances. The Guffens-Heynen "touch" was born! Jean-Marie Guffens belongs to the small circle of artist-winemakers with an innate sense of wine, his vocation is real, the wines speak for him and one can only salute the talent of the winemaker. Sensitivity, creation and passion are the characteristics of the man that we find in his precious nectars.
Today, the estate covers 5.3 hectares, including one hectare in Pouilly-Fuissé. The grapes are harvested by hand, usually in several stages to ensure perfect ripeness of the berries, which are regularly tasted before being picked. The yields are around 18 hectolitres per hectare!
In the cellar, all the stages are simplified to the maximum but carried out with the precision of a goldsmith to bring out the authenticity of the wines. The result is wines that are both pure and racy, full of minerality, reflecting their terroir of origin.
The wines of Guffens-Heynen are unquestionably great wines, the only problem being their unfortunately very limited production each year...
