The Oddbins Take

2009 was a great year for Verget’s Chablis, hailed by many as their best. Handpicked from 40 year old vines in a Grand Cru site, fermented in oak, aged in concrete, the complexity of this is almost baffling. Drinking it is like one of those conveyor belt game show competitions where you have to remember items as they flash past: peach, ginger, pepper, mineral… Only 250 cases of this were made, so pour yourself a glass of something legendary.

In 1976, Maine and Jean-Marie Guffens-Heynen immigrated to Burgundy, France. These fledgling Dutch students gave themselves one year to learn French and discover wine. When they arrived, Jean-Marie started studying viticulture in Davayé and Maine worked in the local area for wine growers. Shortly after, they become managers of a small estate in the Mâconnais region. They learned how to work the vineyard and Jean-Marie how to vinify the wine. In 1979, they acquired a few vine parcels on the hills of Pierreclos. Enthusiastic but inexperienced, they picked up wine growing and wine making in an almost intuitive way.
