The small Clos of St Jean lies directly above the village on slopes that adjoin Vergers, and was historically placed alongside some of the great red wine appellations such as Vosne-Romanée, Corton and Romanée-St. Vivant. Amiot’s 0.25 ha plot of 60 year old vines lies in the central part of the gentle slope with good southern aspect.
This is an En Primeur wine and special conditions apply.

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.

A rich, ripe and balanced Pinot Noir, offering rich structure and tremendously elegant and satisfying fruit quality. There is red cherry, raspberry and a hint of cranberry, balanced by streaks of fresh acidity, sweet oak, spice and a polished silky tannin structure. Big finish – the tannins turn mighty at the end.
Aged for 12 months in 25% new oak followed by 6 months in Cuve.
