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.

A sublime, complex and balanced Chassagne, showing true opulence and decadent layers of sweet honeyed stone fruits, sweet spicy oak and a highly concentrated finish. Notes of honeycomb, spice, wet stones and dessert apple are streaked with lime zest and floral notes. Very, very good!
Delicious with roast chicken
Aged in 30% new oak for 12 months followed by 6 months in cuve. This vineyard was first planted to Pinot Noir by Fabrice and Thierry's grandfather , but since 1983 has been solely Chardonnay.
