Domaine Guy Amiot

Domaine Guy Amiot’s work springs from a long tradition begun in the 1920s under the direction of founder Arsène Amiot. Arsène started acquiring parcels in Chassagne in the 1920s and under his direction Domaine Amiot became one of the first domaines in Burgundy to bottle their own wines. By the time Guy Amiot (who the current domaine is named after), took over in 1985, the domaine had built up very impressive holdings and had passed the knowledge of how to best care for the vines down from generation to generation. There was a continuity of work in the vineyards that led to solid consistency in the wines. In 1993, Guy’s son Thierry Amiot took over and has been both respecting the tradition and striving for improvement ever since.

Tasting Notes

This wine takes its name from Fabrice Amiot’s Great Grandmother. It is a blend of 3 plots and vinified 70% in tank and 30% in old barrels. This is a baby Chassagne Montrachet. In Fabrice’s own words, “I find this wine orgasmic!”. Ripe with aromas of apple, this is such an opulent wine, high in explosive richness, yet not too heavy. There is a lovely wet stone minerality that ties this wine together.
