Pierette and Marc Guillemot took over Domaine Guillemot-Michel from Pierette's parents in 1995 after studying oenology in Beaune and then Montpellier. The domaine can be found in Macon, next to Clessé in the commune of Quintaine, which is widely recognised as some of the finest terroir in the Mâconnais due to the proximity to the Saone river. Pierette's parents were early adopters of biodynamie, acheiving their certification by Demeter in 1991 and their continued commitment to the soil is impressive. The grapes are picked later than most in the area, and a touch of residual sugar in not uncommon. The Vire-Clesse experiences no barrel influence in order to keep the fruit inside as pure as possible.
