Domaine Guillot-Broux Mâcon-Cruzille Le Clos de la Mollepierre is an organic white wine made by Domaine Guillot-Broux with the Chardonnay variety in the AOC Mâcon-Cruzille, in Burgundy (France).
Jean-Gérard Guillot and Jacqueline Broux set up Domaine Guillot-Broux in 1954 with the aim of dedicating themselves to their main passion: wine. When the vine grower passed away, his sons Emmanuel and Patrice expanded the estate to 17 ha and now make 100% organic wines in different French denominations of origin.
Domaine Guillot-Broux Mâcon-Cruzille Le Clos de la Mollepierre comes from vineyards planted in 2011 on an ancient plot. This an under one-hectare vineyard with calcareous clay soil that belonged to the Cluny Abbey monks and is surrounded by a stone wall. The vineyard has been recovered and is now cultivated using only ecological practices to protect and maintain biodiversity.
In the winery, Domaine Guillot-Broux Mâcon-Cruzille Le Clos de la Mollepierre is gently pressed. The resulting must ferments spontaneously with native yeasts and then ages in oak barrels for 11 months.
Made by one of the wineries that has done most to promote organic culture, Domaine Guillot-Broux Mâcon-Cruzille Le Clos de la Mollepierre is a powerful, broad and balanced white wine at an attractive price.
