Domaine Gueguen Bourgogne Aligoté 2022 (6 Bottles) Burgundy, France

$297.00 GST Included


The Aligoté is harvested from 60-year-old vines, planted by Céline’s grandmother at 7,800 plants per hectare on Portlandian limestone around the village of Saint-Bris-le-Vineux. The fruit was pressed to tank for a cool fermentation, followed by full malolactic conversion and maturation on lees for six months.

“From St-Bris territory. Planted in 1965 by maternal grandmother Marie-Louise. Pale with a light green tint. There is some energy to this, not too ripe a style, Fleshes out quite well, with a fresh saline touch to finish. Crystal clear and with enough body to match the structure.” 89 points, Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy



About Domaine Gueguen

Organic-in-conversion Domaine Gueguen is based in the hamlet of Préhy, just 7 km southwest of Chablis. Although it’s dripping with the history of its founders, it was established in just 2013. The vineyards are largely inherited from Céline’s grandmother. Nearly all the fruit is estate-grown, with just a small amount in Chablis sourced from reputable growers.

The estate of Celine and Frederic Gueguen is made up of 25 hectares of vines in the villages of Chablis, Chichee, la Chapelle Vaupelteigne, Saint-Bris and Irancy.

Celine, from a winemaking family, worked with Frederic at her father Jean-Marc Brocards estate for over a decade before they decided in 2013 to go it alone and create their own wines.

Their cellar is in the small village of Prehy, where they work out of a 19th-century building crafting a deliberately modern style of wine, with a focus to respect and express their terroir.

One of their main goals is to preserve their soil, which is why they use neither chemical fertilisers nor herbicides. From 2015 onward all their wine have been made using exclusively organic processes, with the domaine beginning its conversion to certified organics with the 2019 vintage.

Made up of 35 separate parcels, Domaine Gueguen vineyards provide both great complexity, and incredible richness.

Fine Wine Cellars

On the one hand, our role as a merchant of all things wine & spirits could not be simpler. We aim to source the most delicious, the most authentic, and the highest quality products possible from Australia and around the world in order to offer them to our clients. We live or die by how well we perform this task. Of course things are rarely as simple or as easy as they seem. Hunting for wines & spirits is no different. Apart from the months spent travelling, countless days and evenings spent tasting and the outrageous wine expenditure in the name of ‘research’, sourcing quality wine and spirits requires expertise and experience. Understanding the potential of a producer and their products is much more than just a slurp and a spit.
