Domaine Gueguen, Bourgogne Blanc 2020, Cotes Salines, white

Pale yellow colour for this crispy white Burgundy with a nose of white flowers, almonds and toasted bread. The palate reveals a lovely mineral taste very special to the soil of these vines with a finish that reveals a honey taste. The wine is aged on lies and in steel tanks allowing it to keep the crispiness and fruit. The entire estate is now in HVE3 with the next step being full organic conversion. The fermentation is done with only natural yeast and no chemical additives. It is a very good alternative to the far more expensive Chablis, we would recommend to give it a try.

The producer

Domaine Gueguen

Demanding climate, limestone soil with multiple nuances, various valleys that offer contrasting micro-climates, Chablis and Auxerrois Vineyard is a mosaic of terroirs.The diversity of plots is a challenge for us. The balance between soil and micro-climate differs everywhere. You can observe it at harvest time, when a plot can achieve ripeness 3 weeks after the first one.First of all, you have to understand what happens in the vineyard, where terroir comes to life, by observing the wine and bringing all needed care to help the grapes ripen. Ripeness is essential to transfer the terroir to the glass.

The soil is ploughed to encourage the vines to extend their roots more deeply and therefore better express the typicity of the Terroir. Grass is allowed to grow on plots with over-vigorous vines to hold them back.
