Cruzille, Burgundy

The first vineyards of Domaine Guillot-Broux were planted in 1954 by Pierre and Jeannine Guillot. Their son Jean-Gérard Guillot returned to Cruzille, after working for several years in Brouilly and Meursault and in 1978 Jean-Gerard established the Domaine Guillot-Broux with his wife Jacqueline Broux. Today their sons Patrice (vineyard manager) and Emmanuel (sales & marketing) run the Domaine which now has 17 hectares (42 acres) of vines situated in three villages of Cruzille, Grévilly and Chardonnay. Most of the vineyards are on east-facing slopes where the soils are comprised of clayey limestone. The various geological formations give rise to different terroirs, resulting in strikingly different wines. The nature of the soil in Cruzille brings out mineral flavors and produces wines that need a relatively long time to mature. The vineyards in Grévilly and Chardonnay tend to have deeper soil and produce wines that are often fruitier in their youth but also become more complex after several years of age. Each vineyard is vinified separately, but only the best vineyards are selected for single vineyard cuvees. The domaine has been organic from the beginning and has been certified organic since 1991.
