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.

This is a wine of great intensity for a 'village' wine, offering honeyed white stone fruits, a layer of toasted oak and finely balanced, almost thrilling acidity and minerality. Streaks of lime cordial, tangy fresh citrus and spice are all incredibly well balanced and moreish
Try with the classic - fish & chips!
Produced from an average of 30 year old vines on 10 separate parcels, hand-picked, with 30% fermented in new oak and the rest tank fermented in stainless steel, with a long cool fermentation. Racking in the spring moves the wine to fine lees which adds a distinct creamy, nutty texture.
