"Bright red berries with a lovely clod of earth thrown in - just a delicious bottle of Pinot."
Situated in a region packed with historical interest, this award-winning Domaine is perched on a hilltop overlooking the Saône Plain in Mâcon. Close by is the Paleolithic archaeological site Pech de l’Aze, which proves that agricultural activity has gone on in this region since the Iron Age. By comparison, at Domaine des Terre Gentilles, winemaking has been taking place over a considerably shorter space of time but with equal cultural significance. Most of this Domaine’s vineyards were originally cultivated by monks at the Medieval Christian Abbey at Cluny. Established in 1921 by Jean-Pierre Marillier, this award-winning 36-hectare family-owned estate is now expertly run by son and rising star winemaker Mikaël Marillier who is now creating benchmark Mâcon-Village wines.
