Domaine Guillot-Broux Bourgogne “La Myotte” 2019 (92 WA)

“From a parcel planted in 1954, the 2019 Bourgogne Pinot Noir La Myotte mingles aromas of plums, raw cocoa, spices, orange rind and peony in a complex mélange. Medium to full-bodied, lively and concentrated, it’s built around lively acids and fine, powdery tannins, concluding with chalky grip on the finish. This is another Pinot Noir bottling from what is generally Gamay territory.” – W.K.

    This vineyard is situated on a slope in Cruzille that was known historically for its reds. La Myotte is quite a cold terroir where the flowering period is often difficult, and the grapes ripen late. This leads to excellent wines in warmer years. La Myotte is on the same terroir as Beaumont (planted with Gamay), but planted with Pinot Noir. It is very interesting to be able to compare the two.

    Located in Cruzille, Emmanuel’s family comes from five generations of Burgundian grape growers and barrel makers. Emmanuel’s grandfather was a pioneer in organic viticulture and created the first organic vineyard in Burgundy in 1954 (certified since 1991). The story of the small town of Cruzille becoming the birthplace of organic agriculture in Burgundy is truly unbelievable. 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 both wine and the land.
