Domaine Guillot-Broux « Beaumont » 2018 - Mâcon Cruzille rouge (organic)
Domaine Guillot-Broux was founded in 1978 by Jean-Gérard and Jacqueline Guillot (Broux was her maiden name). The estate is now run by their children, Patrice and Emmanuel Guillot. The 17 hectares of vines are spread over 3 villages: Cruzille, Grévilly and Chardonnay, divided into 3 appellations: Bourgogne, Mâcon Cruzille and Mâcon Chardonnay.
All the Gamays of the Domaine are pruned in cordon Royat in order to limit the natural vigor of the grape variety. On the clay-limestone soils of the Mâconnais, the wines express a peppery and spicy character that is quite particular.
Aged for 11 months in oak barrels, Beaumont is a true Gamay with a Burgundian touch...
