Domaine Guillot Broux Macon Villages 2017

Domaine Guillot Broux Macon Villages 2017

Since 1991, the Domaine Guillot Broux Macon has been certified organic wherein they use natural methods to cultivate their vineyards. One of the oldest organic estates in France, their 100% Chardonnay comes from organically farmed grapes and aged 6 months in old oak barriers.

Expect a fresh, fine minerality, and slightly citrus flavor from each bottle.

No Synthetic Fertilizers, Herbicides or Pesticides

Organic grapes are cultivated in vineyards banning the use of artificial inputs, including synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides and pesticides. In organic vineyards, a bountiful growing year relies instead on maintaining strict standards for soil health-for example, upping biodiversity through crop rotation.

No Added Sulfites

In the fermenting and bottling phase of winemaking, organic wines cannot contain added sulfites. Sulfites–also known as sulfur dioxide, a naturally occurring preservative in most wines and an inherent by-product of alcoholic fermentation-can be manually added by the winemaker to up the sulfite level in their bottle of vino, thereby increasing its lifespan. If a winemaker opts to add sulfites but otherwise follows organic farming practices, the wines can’t be labeled “organic.” However, they can be classified as wine “made from organic grapes.”

The exception: bottles produced in Europe and Canada, where organic wine standards allow small amounts of added sulfites as long as the total quantity doesn’t exceed 100 parts per million (ppm) for reds and 150 ppm for whites. (To compare, conventional wine standards in these countries allow sulfite levels up to 150 ppm for red wine and 200 ppm for white.)
