Julien Guillot

Clos des Vignes du Maynes, Burgundy

The vines of the Maynes were planted years ago, when they belonged to the monks of the Cluny Abbey. Since then, the land has always been run by nature’s good graces, making the Guillot family one of the oldest organically farmed winery in France. The Guillot family has owned the Clos des Vignes du Maynes since 1954 and has implemented organic ways to grow the vines since the beginning of their activity. Since Julien took over the estate, he took the farming one step further into biodynamic viticulture.

"The vineyard has never had any chemicals used on it and has always been farmed with the greatest respect for the earth" - Julien Guillot
