An Early Look at Jean-Marie Guffens’ 2020 Wines

Tuesday, 6th April 2021 by Thomas Parker MW

Jean-Marie Guffens needs little introduction to our customers.

These wines are now almost exclusively from the Maconnais, from old vines and great sites overlooked by those with tunnel vision for the Cote d’Or.
