When he created Verget in 1990, Jean-Marie Guffens applied the very same rules as for his own production. Verget’s philosophy can be summed up in one simple sentence: “the best wine comes from the best grapes”. This elementary saying is the corner stone of Verget. Thus, wether in Mâconnais, Chablis or Cote d’Or, the best vineyards and best terroirs are selected to produce quality wines.

The raison d’être of Verget is to reveal all the character of the wines by revealing their terroirs. Verget successfully implemented this process for some time now in Chablis and Côte d’Or regions. But in Maconnais, which has historically been producing generic wines, this approach gains its full meaning. This is where Verget produces the most wines per appellation.
This logic enables to discover all the aspects, all the shades in a word all the subtlety of a single appellation.
With this unusual approach, Verget has become a terroir laboratory and a climate creator..

After harvest, grapes are received and pressed with the greatest care. An analytic follow up is made at each step of pressing. The grapes of each parcel harvested are pressed and vinified separately.

Wines are aged on lees and get a regular “batonnage”. This process consists in stirring the wines gently in order to enrich them with the characteristics of the vintage and the terroir contained in the lees. The wines can be aged in barrels, wooden, cement or stainless steel tanks or combining tanks and barrels. The aging method is as adapted as possible to the very nature of each harvest.

These working methods not only enable to draw the best from grapes without altering them but also to reveal the character of each terroir.
