Guffens-Heynen Macon-Pierreclos Juliette et Les Vieilles de Chavigne 2020

$145.00

“The 2020 Mâcon-Pierreclos Juliette et les Vieilles de Chavigne unfurls in the glass with aromas of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers, confit citrus, pink grapefruit, iodine and smoke. Full-bodied, layered and immensely concentrated, it’s satiny and multidimensional, with an incisive spine of acidity and a long, pungently mineral finish. Of the three iterations of this cuvée produced to date, this looks set to be the finest; but make no mistake, it is a serious, structured wine that will demand and reward patience.” 94-96+ points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate

2020 is the third release of Guffens’s latest masterpiece, Mâcon-Pierreclos Juliette et les Vieilles de Chavigne. “For many years I have wanted to produce a cuvée from the parcel of vines that I call Juliette.” says Guffens. Planted in 2003, the vines are rooted in such poor, stony soil that even Guffens wonders how the vines manage to grow. With the baby vines stunted by the 2003 heatwave, these plants produce intense yields with soaring, concentrated acidity.

Aged for 18 months in barrel, the result is a stunning, freak wine of incredible depth and deliciousness. Somehow, it’s hugely powerful and incredibly seductive at the same time. This is a wine that could only come from Jean-Marie Guffens!
