This special cuvée is a commemoration of eleven hundred years of winemaking, the vineyards in the Clos des Vignes du Maynes having been planted around AD 900 and wine first produced for the Abbey of Cluny around 910. This "medieval" wine is a field blend of Chardonnay, Gamay and Pinot Noir, including the old varieties Gamay Petit Grain and Pinot Fin. The grapes are carefully hand-harvested then pressed by foot, vinified and aged without sulfur and bottled by hand in the spring.  The palate is light but loaded with ripe, pure berry fruit backed by citrusy acids. Zippy, refreshing and very gulpable, with subtle notes of hibiscus tea, and tart berries, beautifully perfumed and low in alcohol - in the true style of Jules Chauvet. The 2022 showed beautifully last winter before bottling - it may need some time to recover, and should gain complexity with time, perhaps three to five years or more.
