 "As important as picking ripe grapes in the vineyard, in the cellar, pressing may be one of the most crucial parts of winemaking to Jean-Marie. The grapes are lightly crushed before being pressed. In the winery a modified coquard press is used, also something uncommon in Burgundy. The first press and free run is a crucial part of their pressing. This is the juice that is lower in PH and provides the incredible acidity we find in the Guffens wines. When done correctly, it is quite magical. All of this is what Jean-Marie really thinks makes the major difference. it is different vintage to vintage and vineyard to vineyard, is usually slow and meticulously done , it is more the person working the press than the press itself. The wine is then transferred for fermentationvarious size barrels and concrete depending on the vintage." - Importer Note
