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.

Produced from 65 year old vines, just above Vergers, that enjoy a North-East exposure and hence a longer ripening period. Vergers means “orchard” so the appley characters are most apt. A very aromatic bouquet boasting intense ripe apple aromas. The palate follows suit, rich in nougat and honey flavours and supported by a racy minerality. This is such a decadent wine.
Try with a warm salmon with hollandaise or beurre blanc sauce or salmon fishcakes.
