We love the wines of Domaine Guillot-Broux. We love the history of the estate. We love the tradition of organic farming that made Domaine Guillot-Broux the first certificated organic estate in Burgundy. What we love the most right now though is the opportunity to get you two of the Domaine’s top cuvèes. Domaine Guillot-Broux is located on the northern end of the southern most region in Burgundy, the Macon. These are wonderful wines and tremendous values! 1er Cru level quality, Villages level prices!
The visit with Emmanuel in 2013 was great. Even though it was an incredibly busy time, he was patient, thoughtful, articulate and engaging. Never once making me feel like my visit was an imposition (even though it was). True grace under pressure – harvest pressure. Especially when you consider there really wasn’t a BWS at the time and he had lots of importers he was working with and clamoring for his wines. He let me down easy at the end saying at the time he had nothing available to sell. Code for “why don’t you come back when there’s a business and maybe we can talk.”
So come back I did in November last year. Harvest was over this time but Manu was on his way to a wine fair in Brussels. I told him I’d meet him really earlier in the morning the day he was leaving and he acquiesced. We squeezed it in and I couldn’t be happier we were able to reconnect. After spending the morning together and making him late for his trek to Brussels, I popped the question. This time we got the answer we wanted. Once you get your hands on Guillot-Broux’s wines, it will all become perfectly clear.
More about each of these charming, delicious, mineral inflected wines and the Domaine at the links above and below. The quality across the board at Domaine Guillot-Broux compares very favorably with many other more esteemed (and considerably more expensive) growers in the Côte d'Or. These deserve your attention.
Get on the Macon!

In the words of David Schildknecht from Vinous, “Austria’s 2013 Rieslings and Grüner Veltliners display exceptionally bright acidity, clear flavor definition and uncanny complexity.” 2013 has given us the stunning combination of healthy, ripe grapes that remain light on their feet as the alcohol levels stayed in check, married with focused, tense acidity.
