Meaning ‘Orchard’, the vineyard of Vergers is situated at the top of the slope, as it bends north away from the village. The aspect is North East so the vines enjoy a longer, less sun-kissed aspect and hence the freshness of the wines are immediate. Amiot’s 0.5ha is planted with 65 year old vines.

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 again very intense, with the apple, freshness and citrus notes very pronounced. The palate is a delight. A tight, steely acidity combines with ripe grapefruit, if that’s not a contradiction, honeycomb, roasted nut, a hint of cereal and the wonderful brooding richness that will just keep developing for many years to come. This is an outstanding wine!
Try with warm salmon with hollandaise or beurre blanc sauce or salmon fishcakes.
Aged in 25% new oak with 12 months barrel maturation.
