Flavie was Fabrice Amiot’s Great Grandmother! Fortunately, the vineyards are less affected by any late frosts, being lower in front of the village and being more North East facing. Tasted blind, you would think you are drinking Chassagne-Montrachet!
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.

The bouquet is intense, revealing pink grapefruit, hint of vegetal, cream and roasted nut. The palate is fresh, intense, and mineral-led, with a lovely concentration of white stone fruits, buttered dessert apple, lime and wet stones. Balanced, taut and showing tremendous energy and poise. Tastes like a good Chassagne!
Goes well with lobster bisque risotto
A blend of 3 separate parcels, with 30% fermented in new oak and 70% in stainless steel tanks.
