Been waiting to get these wines in for a while! Here are a few reasons we are excited about this young woman making wines on the edge of Burgundy. 

Area Raphaelle Guyot’s winery sits on the periphery of what is still considered Burgundy, being geographically almost closer to the Loire than it is to the heart of Burgundian production. Here, they even have even have a Burgundy appellation that makes room for the use of Sauvignon Blanc! Although today the landscape is very stark, this is a part of Burgundy that pre-Phylloxera was planted prolifically with vines (over 200ha), and so raises the intrigue in curious growers like Raphaelle to explore the possibilities of replanting and discovering a forgotten landscape. -New Comer Wines 

Size Although she only has about 1.5ha currently under vine, Raphaelle has dreams to increase this to an impressive 15ha, and encourage diversity in the crops on the farm, including oat, wheats and lentils. She is actively integrating cattle and livestock into her vineyards and farms.All of her wines display a distinct freshness and the deft touch of a mature winemaker who is committed to working in a low intervention manner, but who will intervene where necessary. Although a big chunk of the production is from fruit purchased negociant style, the more she plants and begins to cultivate and produce from her own grapes, the more she believes the quality of the wines will improve and take on a greater identity.
