Domaine Guillot-Broux is a family-owned proporty that has been consistently farming in an organic fashion since the beginning. The domaine has been certified organic since 1991, definitely one of the pioneers in the move to go organic. The current owners like to tell how their grandfather started the first organic vineyard in Burgundy in 1954, when the rest of the world was still enamored with the promises of fertilizers and pesticides before the side effects of additives started ruining the vines.
The vines used for the cuvée La Myotte were planted in 1956, 62 years of age and counting. The owners describe this wine as "noble, yet capricious". It is only bottled in excellent vintages.
Effective October 18, 2019, the US Trade Representative's Office imposed a new 25% value-added tax (i.e., import tariffs) on a wide range of European products (including French wine, Italian cheese and single malt Scotch whisky) to penalize EU subsidies for Airbus. EU has made counter-claims agains the US subsidies for Boeing. A ruling by WTO on EU's counter-claims is expected in the spring of 2020.
For any Futures (en primeur) and Pre-Arrival items, our current prices are shown before taxes and tariffs. Prior to shipment, we may have to collect any tariffs levied by the US government at the time. Tariffs will be based on the date of importation and the rate of US tariffs in place at the time. Current rules exempt wines with alcohol content above 14.5% from the newly imposed 25% tariffs. We will offer free storage in our professional wine cellar in Bordeaux in the event of any delay in importation caused by the uncertainties created by tariffs.
If you believe these tariffs are NOT in the best interest of US consumers like yourself, please consider writing to your congressional representatives to let them hear your voice. You can find out how to contact your representatives here using this directory provided by the US Congress.
