The Demoiselles vineyard, lying to the northern edge of Montrachet and across from the 1er Cru of Pucelles, is owned by just 3 producers. It is arguably the finest of the 1er cru, and, for the sake of 9 feet of pathway and a small wall, could be Montrachet itself. Amiot’s 0.25ha of 70 year old vines are wedged between the northern edge of the Grand Cru of Le Montrachet, and just below Chevalier-Montrachet. In most vintages Amiot produces 6.5 barrels in 2022.
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.

What a stunning wine. Hugely rich, intense and mouth-filling, ripe and honeyed with layers of complex cereal, glace fruits, sweet oak and intense minerality struck through with chalk, menthol and meringue. HUGE - decadent - sublime!
Delicious as an accompaniment to lobster, crab soufflé or monkfish.
55-70 year old vines, with 40% new oak. Hand-picked, sorted and fermented in steel tanks before finishing ferment in new and used oak. 45hl/ha was the yield in 2022, a healthy quantity after the miserly yield in 2021
