More info

Established several centuries ago, in the early 900s, when the renowned Abbey of Cluny was founded, the Clos des vignes du Mayne, owned by the Guillot family since the 1950s, is resolutely committed to sustainable organic and biodynamic viticulture methods. Traditional grape varieties such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Aligoté stretch across a total surface area of 7 hectares in appellations such as Mâcon, Mâcon-Cruzille, Bourgogne, Beaujolais and Mâcon-villages.
Today, Julien Guilllot takes us by surprise with the Léandre cuvée. It is produced from Chardonnay grapes matured for two years. The wine delivers a somewhat powerful aromatic and olfactory bouquet of white fruit, flowers and citrus fruit. The palate is invigorated by a naturally noble acidity, guaranteeing the wine’s ageing potential and liveliness. To be enjoyed at the table after a minimum of one hour of aeration.

About the Producer Clos des Vignes du Maynes

Found in Cruzille in the Mâconnais, Clos des Vignes du Maynes is now in the hands of Julien Guillot. This is a particularly old, Burgundy domain that dates back to the 10th century, more specifically to the time when Cluny Abbey was founded by the Duke of Aquitaine. The domain then belonged to many generations of country people until it was bought by Pierre and Jeanna Guillot in 1952. They have never used chemicals, always working as naturally as possible. After passing the torch on to their son Alain, who has played an important role in the promotion of organics in France, his son Julien who joined the domain in 1998 represents the third generation of the family to work at the domain. The vineyard spans 7 hectares planted with Pinot Noir, Gamay and Chardonnay. The harvests are carried out by hand with careful selection. In the winery, everything is done naturally with very little intervention: fermentation occurs with indigenous yeasts, and no sulphur or additives are used. The red wines undergo semi-carbonic maceration with a mini-punching over and light stirring. They are matured in barrels and there is no filtering at the end. Julien Guillot wishes to make ‘sharing wines' and he succeeds wonderfully with his high-quality and uncommonly elegant cuvées
