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.
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. In 1993, Guy’s son Thierry Amiot took over and has been both respecting the tradition and striving for improvement ever since.
This 2022 Vergers is a classic Amiot wine - powerful, almost explosive in intensity and sumptuous quality of fruit. Honeyed, full, bodied, structured and yet so, so elegant in character. There is vibrancy here too, with a tension that gives the wine tremendous energy and complexity. Huge structure - beautiful wine!
Try with a warm salmon with hollandaise or beurre blanc sauce or salmon fishcakes.
