Triangle de Guffens Vin de France 2019
Triangle de Guffens is quite unlike anything we’ve ever experienced before…
Most Burgundy lovers will know that Domaine Guffens-Heynen is one of the greatest wineries in the Mâconnais region. Their wines often rival the Grand Cru sites from the Côtes de Beaune and their négociant business, Verget, is equally loved around the globe. However, what is probably less well known is that the owner, Jean-Marie Guffens, also possesses an estate in the Luberon (near the Rhône Valley) and one in Barsac (Bordeaux) called Château Closiot.
In the spectacular and prosperous 2019 vintage, Jean-Marie Guffens had the kind of slightly ‘mad scientist’ brainwave that geniuses are prone to have, to blend wine from his three estates throughout the country. The result is a Vin de France called Triangle de Guffens.
Unorthodox and fascinating, this innovative white is a combination of Chardonnay from Pouilly-Fuissé and Mâcon, dry Semillon from Barsac (one of the communes of the Sauternes appellation) and Viognier from the South of France. Vibrant and deeply hedonistic, it’s brimming with creamy peach yoghurt, apricot sorbet, lemon pith, blood orange oil, gunflint and dried herbs. This remarkable creation is one to serve the wine geek in your life; we promise that it will thoroughly confuse and delight them. But be quick, because only 600 cases were created and it's already on the menu at places like Noble Rot. So, these bottles are sure to be snapped up by those in the know.
