Guillot Julien
Clos des Vignes du Maynes

In the territory of Cruzille, a village in the northern Mâconnais, the Domaine des Vignes du Maynes is the result of a Clos created by the monks of the Abbey of Cluny at the dawn of the 10th century. Since its acquisition by the Guillot family in 1952, it has established itself as a pioneer and emblematic domain of organic wine growing and wine making: it produces white and red wines of the Burgundy, Mâcon and Mâcon-Cruzille appellations that are particularly convincing and renowned for their authenticity.

The Domaine des Vignes du Maynes is an emblematic pioneer of organic wine growing and wine making in the Mâconnais and more widely in France. It comes from a Clos created in Cruzille, north-east of Cluny, by the monks of the Cistercian abbey at the dawn of the 10th century. Acquired in 1952 by Pierre Guillot and then passed on to Alain (in 1970), who was president of the National Federation of Organic Agriculture, and then to Julien (in 2001), the vines today represent 8 hectares, entirely under organic cultivation since the beginning and switched to biodynamic farming in the 2000s. They are spread over clay-limestone soils on hard limestone, between gamay, pinot noir and chardonnay and are offered in AOC Bourgogne, Mâcon and Mâcon-Cruzille. The impeccable quality of the grapes, obtained by very rigorous cultivation practices, is optimised in the cellar by low interventionist vinification (apart from a small dose of sulphur on the whites before racking). The reds undergo semi-carbonic maceration ("millefeuille" of whole bunches and destemmed berries) in wooden vats and are then matured in barrels and foudres without racking, while the whites are only made in large containers in order to favour the freshness of the fruit, which is one of the constants of the estate. The objective - perfectly achieved - is to produce lively and convivial wines, with beautiful aromatic elegance, fine minerality and silky texture.
