Undeniably one of our favourites. Ever heard of Cruzille ? Maybe you have if you are an expert. Yet the old vines from this « Clos » which once belonged to the Monks of the Cluny Abbey deserve to be upgraded to « Cru du Mâconnais » level. The 35 to 55 year- old vines of our Mâcon-Cruzille are tended with extreme care and the utmost respect for the soil (ploughing, Biodynamic agriculture).

One character of Cruzille : its late-maturing slope compared to Vinzelles for exemple. But what a wine, such minerality, such cosmic energy in 2007. A superlative wine not for ordinary mmouths. Limited quantities !!
