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. The wines of this domaine age particularly well, largely due to the serious acidity and minerality that so epitomise them when tasting from barrel.

Tasting Notes

Deep, intense aromas of poire are followed by a powerful palate full of rich, ripe tropical fruit.

Food Matches

Great match for roasted chicken with an almond and thyme crust with chargrilled cauliflower.
