Domaine Gueguen, Les Mazelots 2020, Irancy
Domaine Gueguen, Les Mazelots, a lovely light-bodied red wine from the Irancy appellation is a must-buy wine for the lovers of Pinot Noir, made with reasoned culture, respectful of the vines, the terroir and the environment: Ploughing, organic fertilizers, no insecticide, At the end of the onset of ripening (véraison), we cut all the grapes that didn’t achieve this stage (the bunches that would never reach maturity). The wine has a bright red colour and a nose that is fresh and intense, slightly spicy, and dominated by red fruit (the authentic Pinot Noir).
The palate will reveal the freshness of the attack of red fruits, raspberries, cherries and blackcurrant. followed by a slight tannic intensity and ends on a harmonious final touch.

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.
