In southern Burgundy, in the Maconnais, lies one of Burgundy's greatest terroirs: the Clos des Vignes du Maynes. The 16.5 acre vineyard is a monopole estate (owned by a single owner) that has been in continuous existence since 910 AD. The current owners, the Guillot family, celebrated the estate's 1,100-year anniversary in 2008. Throughout its entire 1,000-plus years of existence, the vineyard has never been treated with chemicals, and the Guillot family have kept it that way. The vines planted have remained selection massale. So when you consider the estate and its wines, it's like time stood still. The purity of the terroir is clearly expressed in the wines. Julien Guillot, the family's young vigneron who's now in charge of the estate, vinifies naturally, fermenting with natural yeasts and not using any additives or sulphites. A blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay made in the traditional Champagne method from vines grown in one of Burgundy's oldest estates. Rich, vibrant flavors that showcase the the depth of fruit from this extraordinary terroir.
