An organic and natural Mâcon-Villages which should be enjoyed in its own right, as an aperitif, to appreciate all of its vibrancy and energy. More info

The Domaine des Vignes du Maynes is a very old domaine with origins dating back to the 900s. However, it has only belonged to the same family since the 1950s. A family which shunned the dictates of fashionable winemaking by refusing to use any kind of chemical input in its cultivation. So these days Julien Guillot, who manages the domaine, likes to apply organic and biodynamic cultivation methods and use natural vinification techniques.
This Mâcon-Villages originates from a terroir of fine silts, limestone and clay which give it a beautiful minerality. The grapes are harvested by hand and rigorously sorted both in the vineyard and the winery before undergoing slow pressing and settling which is useful for separating the skins from the juice. Native yeasts trigger the fermentation process and the wine is matured on the lees for a year.
Tasting reveals a vibrant, fresh and delicately fruity wine. We recommend enjoying it straightaway to appreciate its liveliness, minerality and energy. Ideal as an aperitif alongside seafood dishes, gougères or fresh goats’ cheese.

Mâcon-Villages Les Vignes du Maynes serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Gougères, Fromage de chèvre frais, Mini quiches au saumon fumé.

    Information about domain 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
