One of the domain's highly coveted reds. More info
This wine is one of Domaine des Vignes du Maynes' most coveted cuvées, as one of the historic figures of the Mâconnais region. This cuvée is made from Gamay à petit grain, and the vines are planted in clay-chalk soil.
After a manual harvest with two sorting stages, fermentation is instigated by indigenous yeasts. Maturation lasts 11 months with no stirring, and the wine is bottled with no added sulphur. In the glass, this is a wine with a delicate flavour you are unlikely to forget. Purity takes centre stage!
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
