Vignes du Maynes Mâcon-Cruzille 'Aragonite Blanc'
Vignes du Maynes is run my the inimitable Julien Guillot, who converted the family estate to biodynamics when he took over in 1998. The most natural methods possible are used to vinify the wines. Semi-carbonic maceration is used for the reds and long fermentations are favoured.
The Aragonite Blanc is Chardonnay from a single parcel of 40-80 year old vines once belonging to the Benedictine Abbey of Cluny. Rich, vibrant and open with a solid core of green apple, pear, apricot and lemon fruit as well as floral hints of bergamot, honeysuckle and citrus blossom.
