This larger vineyard lies directly beneath Vergers and gently slopes to the upper reaches of the village and across to the boundary with Puligny and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet. Amiot owns a 0.5 plot of clay dominant soil which helps retain a softer, more opulent style of Chassagne. Exposure is North East and the vines are 50 years old, which in 2021 gave barely 20hl/ha! Known as the La Femme Classique of Chassagne!

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.

The nose is exotic, almost lush with tropical notes of ripe peach, pineapple, baked apple and some citrus. The palate is both fresh and lush, a contradiction, but in a wonderfully appealing way. The palate is complex, rich and structured with layers of honey, wet stones, cereal, and pink grapefruit.
