When he created Verget in 1990, Jean-Marie Guffens applied the very same rules as for his own production (Domaine Guffens-Heynen.) Verget’s philosophy can be summed up in one simple sentence: “the best wine comes from the best grapes”. This elementary saying is the corner stone of Verget. Thus, whether in Mâconnais, Chablis or Cote d’Or, the best vineyards and best terroirs are selected to produce quality wines.
The raison d’être of Verget is to reveal all the character of the wines by revealing their terroirs. Verget successfully implemented this process for some time now in Chablis and Côte d’Or regions. But in Maconnais, which has historically been producing generic wines, this approach gains its full meaning. This is where Verget produces the most wines per appellation.
International Wine Cellar:
(made from declassified Montee de Tonnerre, Fourchaume and Cote de Jouan; vinified and aged in concrete tank): Discreet, high-pitched aromas of lemon, lime, grapefruit, pineapple and dusty stone. Dense and savory, with lovely intensity and floral perfume to the white fruit flavors. Builds nicely on the brisk, dusty finish.
