The Clos des Vignes du Maynes was first recorded on cadastral maps by Burgundian monks. Its origin dates back to 910, the year Cluny Abbey was founded by the Duke of Aquitaine. The vineyard has never had any chemicals used on it and has always been farmed with the greatest respect for the earth. Their aim is to make wines that are to be shared, for people who enjoy drinking wine, who are looking for a generous and pleasant wine. In order to continue improving their soils and plants, in 1998 they carried out their first biodynamic trials. They use the most natural methods possible to vinify their wines: using natural yeasts, no sulfur, no enzymes and no chemical additives. The wooden vats are cleaned thoroughly beforehand, and they are scrubbed with marc de Bourgogne to stimulate the yeasts. All their red wines are then matured in barrels or wooden vats. They do not touch the wine until Easter. They do the racking when the moon is both waning and descending, in order for the wine to be as calm as possible. This is done in order to avoid having to filter the wines. Then they are assembled in one vat per cuvee and left to rest for two full moons.
