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.
Pretty colour, ruby core, the fruit is very much to the fore on the nose, almost stewed red fruits, with a hint of herbal freshness. The palate is rounded, generous and fruit-driven initially, a touch of raspberry and mulled cherry. Then the tannins kick in, the wine tightening and showing grip, structure and stony minerality. A hint of menthol is a nod toward the limestone soil. The impression is of a generous, elegant and balanced Pinot, well structured, a fine tannin structure, good acidity and a long fragrant finish.
100% destemmed after hand picking, fermented in epoxy tank before finishing ferment in 25% new oak
