Cellar: Native yeast fermentation, unfined, unfiltered, no added sulphur
Notes: Julien Guillot at the Clos des Vignes du Maynes makes this Mâcon Rouge from 20 different varieties of Gamay, from this historic estate which has been worked organically for more than half a century. The 2017 shows a deep red colour with aromas of blackberry, tart cherry, srawberry, black pepper, roast meat, fennel, citrus peel, violet... The palate is lean and elegant with citrusy black fruits, earth and mineral flavors, chalky and long. "This wine is indestructible" says Julien, and it's obviously built to last.
