Domaine Sangouard-Guyot Wines
Your Sommelier is very proud of this discovery, a small family vineyard in the heart of the Maconnais and split across three great appellations: Pouilly-Fuissé, Saint-Véran and Mâcon. All their wines are true examples of what Chardonnay can be at its best in the terroirs of South Burgundy. They are very popular and sold out so quickly year after year that it's never easy to get our hands on them!
The estate has been in Pierre-Emmanuel’s family since the 18th Century and he has merged it to his wife’s family estate to create the 12 hectares they manage together, with the help of their children… a true family story! It goes without saying that the work in the vineyards is done with the utmost respect for the nature, grapes are handpicked and the use of chemical products is limited to a minimum. Winemaking is then specific to each plot to make the most of the different terroirs and to produce so specific Cuvées.
Of course one might wonder why this Domain remains so confidential and the answer is in its size: each Cuvée is only a few thousand bottles and this is why you won’t find them easily in the UK!
