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.

Exotic, yeasty and finely balanced nose, showing notes of some tropical pear, apple and mango, balanced by wet stones and a steely undertone. The palate is fresh, immediate and linear – poised on a razor edge of acidity and green herbal leaf, rounded out by stewed apple and bread yeast. The 1/3rd oak (with no new wood) is present, but never overpowers the wine and this freshness and added texture creates tension in the wine and the impression of power and subtlety. This is a baby Chassagne Montrachet!
