The 2018 Mâcon-Cruzille Beaumont has turned out beautifully, wafting from the glass with notes of raspberries, Griotte cherries, rose petals and subtle spices. Medium to full-bodied, deep and satiny, it's tightly wound and precise, with tangy acids and beautifully refined tannins, concluding with a site-typical mineral finish. This is a serious, inherently structured wine, so readers shouldn't be mislead by the modest appellation into drinking it too soon: four or five years' bottle age will be richly rewarded.

Winery Description

The estate was created in 1954 by Pierre and Jeannine GUILLOT. In 1978 their son, Jean-Gérard Guillot, came back to Cruzille town with his wife and they created Domaine Guillot – Broux with only 1 hectar of vines. Today Emmanuel et Patrice Guillot, the third generation, is taking care of the family business.

Today the estate is composed of 17 hectares of vines situated in the three villages of Cruzille, Grévilly and Chardonnay, and have two appellations: Mâcon Cruzille and Mâcon Chardonnay. Most of the vineyards are on east-facing slopes on clayey limestone soil. The various geological formations give rise to different terroirs, resulting in strikingly different wines.

The domaine has been organic from the beginning, and has been certified organic since 1991. We plough, and use natural methods of fighting parasites, green manure, organic fertilisers (to feed the soil and not the vines), and mineral sprays with stable active molecules that leave no residues in the wines.
