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.

Tasting Notes

The bouquet is typical of the Amiot style - ripe, full and forward, offering notes of honeyed, stewed apple, vanilla, roasted pistachio and wet stones. The palate mirrors these textured flavours, with a ripeness and tropical fruit quality that hints at the warm vintage, and balances perfectly against the razor-sharp acidity. Refined, poised and full bodied and showing real tension.
