Guillot-Broux "Les Genievrieres" Macon-Cruzille Blanc 2014 3.0 LT

90 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
(12/2015) "(all of the 2014s had been bottled by the time of my October visit, in part due to the short 2013 crop): Aromas of lemon, almond flower and hazelnut, plus a hint of spicy oak. Very dry, smooth and extract-rich, showing youthfully bound-up lemon and saline flavors supported by powerful minerality. Really penetrating and energetic, and firm and perfumed on the lingering finish. From active calcaire soil, as with the Perrières. Offers a lot of flavor for just 12.8% alcohol."

Guillot-Broux "La Myotte" Macon-Cruzille Rouge 2015

91 Our Score
89 Vinous, Stephen Tanzer
(10/2016) "(this Pinot Noir vineyard in Cruzille was originally planted in 1954 by the Guillots' grandfather, but this cuvée was made from vines planted in 1978 and 2000; aged in 10% to 15% new oak, which Emmanuel Guillot says is rare for this category): Bright medium red. Liqueur-like black cherry and spices on the very ripe nose. Superrich but a bit youthfully tight thanks to piquant acidity, showing a slightly exotic quality to its dark fruit flavors. More tannic than the Mâcon-Cruzille Gamay; in fact, this overperformer for its category has an element of power that reminded me of the Côte de Nuits. Finishes with youthfully edgy tannins."

Stephen Tanzer is a notoriously difficult scorer, but his write up is spot on! We thought this wine was few points higher.

(12/2015) "(100% Pinot Noir; from vines in Cruzille planted in 1954 by the Guillots' grandfather; the yield here was barely 30 hectoliters per hectare; 10% new oak): Good dark red. Slightly rustic aromas of cherry, cranberry and a whiff of goat cheese. Plusher and richer than the Gamays but in a very dry style. A distinctly sauvage style of Pinot but with good material and subtle juicy persistence. Guillot uses the same oak toast for his Pinot as for his white wines to avoid getting "smoky burning-wood flavors." Finishes with substantial, slightly parching tannins. Drink: 2017 - 2022."
