This ‘Grand Cru’ Luberon white is drawn from a single plot of Chardonnay on Tourette’s l’Aigle terroir, a limestone plateau where the Chardonnay grapes stand out for their intensity and freshness. From here, Guffens believes he can craft prestige, age-worthy Chardonnays from the south and to back up this claim, he releases the wines five years after the harvest. Aware of the natural richness and density gifted by his terroir, Jean-Marie chooses to vinify only the purest and naturally tense free-run juices. Then he favours a short aging in barrels (25% new) for eight months, before subsequent aging in concrete vats, only on fine lees, for around 10 additional months.
