Verget is owned and run by Jean- Marie Guffens, who contracts with selected growers for only ideally situated, low-yielding, old vines and pays a premium for the privilege. He oversees harvest at every step and his own teams pick when and where he dictates. Thus, he controls vinification from the outset, pressing the grapes himself at his cutting-edge winery in the sleepy little village of Sologny in the Mâconnais. This particularly lovely expression of Burgundian Chardonnay hails from vineyards specifically with stony soil – ‘terres de pierres’. With an herbal spiciness and scents of apple, rising dough and nutmeg, this wine has silky texture, crispy apple fruit, subtle minerality, clarity, elegance, balance and a persistent finish. No wonder that leading French wine critic, Michel Bettane, finds it “a complete and classic wine.”
