Clos des vignes du Maynes Manganite Mâcon-Cruzille Gamay 2018

Tasted blind while knowing the list of wines. Guessed the wine. And I found it beautiful and refreshing, especially in contrast with the previous atrocity. A charming bouquet of cherry, white pepper, mushrooms, dill and pickled tomato. Relatively funky, fresh and elevated. Not simple, rather a challenge, but a pleasant one.

Cuvée "AUGUSTE" Bourgogne Pinot Noir 2019

Xmas day 2022. Opened for grandma. Perfumed nose w rose petals, sweet berries, orange rind.

100% Pinot Fin, extremely rare massale selection from 1964. From the walled vineyard (Clos) of six hectares, 2 ha of this comprises the Pinot Noir for the Cuvée Auguste. It is blessed with a hard limestone soil with pearl slabs called aragonitic limestone. Yield is a scant 20 hl/ha. Semi-carbonic whole-cluster fermentation with cold pre-fermentation, natural yeasts, no SO2, no chaptalisation or enzymes. Matured in barrels, no racking. Assembled in a large vat 40 days before bottling. Bottled using nitrogen, no filtration.
“Bursting with aromas of peonies, orange rind, sweet berries, plums and rose petals, the 2019 Bourgogne Rouge Cuvée Auguste is medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with lively acids and a perfumed core of fruit that's framed by melting tannins. While this cuvée sometimes behaves erratically in the cellar, Guillot assures me that more attention to detail when racking and the use of a new, in-house bottling line will help to improve consistency. Today, this is certainly a beautiful wine, the most delicious Cuvée Auguste I've tasted.” William Kelley, WA 91

Cuvée 910 Clos des Vignes du Maynes Mâcon-Cruzille Pinot Noir 2021

Wildcard. Prob my fav cuvée from Julien. Tasted aged even tho it’s a 21. Flowery quality to it, like roses, potpourri.

[2019 Vintage:] “A captivating, translucent ruby red hue. Even on the nose alone, there is already a suggestion of ripeness, yet it is utterly enveloped by fragrance: white flowers, grapefruit, cherry, even stony minerals. Really classy and effusive, replete with sapid pinot-esque flavours of enviable concentration. The vintage is quite magical here: all pure, palate-staining but also inexplicably airy in the mouth. The mouthfeel is silky, culminating in a persistent, gentle and thoroughly sweet-fruited long finish held together by an invisible frame. Like the ethereal cuvée Auguste, trails of crushed flower petals replicate and repeat on the lingering finish.” AC
“Guillot brings a unique perspective to gamay—not quite Burgundy, not yet Beaujolais—not only in his Mâcon Rouge and Mâcon-Cruzille, but the mysterious, radiant, field-blended Cuvée 910.” Jon Bonné
