The steeper slopes of Caillerets, strewn with lumps of limestone and pebbles, lie beside the winery on the southern aspect of the village, and this benefit from the afternoon sun. Amiot’s 0.5ha is split between 2 parcels, one 85 years old, the other a mere 47!
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.

This is a stunning wine! Perfectly balanced, ripe, expansive and generous, with layers of grapefruit, Gala apple, lime cordial and cashew. Rich, expansive and complex. There is a honeyed quality to the golden fruit, making the wine seem more rich and sumptuous. A wine of great poise and structure.
Try with a warm salmon with hollandaise or beurre blanc sauce or salmon fishcakes.
Aged for12 months in 60% new oak and 6 months in tank before bottling.
