Domaine Guillot-Broux Macon-Cruzille Les Geniévrières Blanc 2019
Located in Cruzille, this important family estate was a pioneer in organic viticulture and created the first organic vineyard in Burgundy in 1954 (certified since 1991). Today, the Domaine is run by brothers Emmanuel and Patrice, who maintain their family’s historic winemaking and vineyard practices that are rooted in deep respect for the land. The estate’s wines possess beautiful minerality and structure.
WA93: The 2019 Mâcon-Cruzille Les Geniévrières is showing beautifully, wafting from the glass with notes of pear, lemon oil, dried white flowers and warm bread. Medium to full-bodied, with a fleshy core of concentrated fruit that's framed by chalky dry extract and underpinned by tangy acids, it has turned out especially well. Perhaps that's because Guillot opted to extend élevage to a year in barrel and fully six months in tank.
