Maison Verget

Jean-Marie Guffens and his wife Maine have lived in the Mâconnais region since 1976. They are totally self-taught and their rebellious spirit has not always had the good fortune to please the French authorities, who have made life difficult for them... As well as the Guffens-Heynen vineyard, in 1990 this Flemish couple established the Verget trading company, enabling them to exploit "all the subtleties of a single appellation". The Verget philosophy is crystal clear: "The best wine is made using the best grapes". Grapes that Jean-Marie Guffens buys from preferred partners to produce quality wines.

Pouilly-Fuissé "La Roche"

This plot lies above the village of Vergisson, in the heart of the Roche de Vergisson region. Facing south-east with shallow, very pebbly clay-limestone soil, this is one of the finest areas of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation. The yield was small in 2013. The first juice was vinfied entirely in barrels, using 20% new barrels. The wine is matured for ten months and undergoes frequent batonnage owing to the fine quality of the lees.

   Yellow-gold robe of medium intensity.

   Great minerality both on the nose and in the mouth. Aromas of gunflint.

   Absolute precision in the mouth with a fine finish.

   Shellfish, fish tajine, white meat in sauce.

   12-14°C.
