Overview

Guigne Chèvres is a north-facing site with a complex terroir of flint above a shallow layer of limestone and red clay. It’s a nervy wine, taught with a pronounced citrus and herbal character. There are elements of flinty minerality that emerge with time in the glass. It is aged for 12 months in larger upright Stockinger foudres.
