Domaine Guy Amiot Chassagne-Montrachet “Vieilles Vignes” 2017
100% C hardonnay
Domaine Guy Amiot was founded in 1920 and is now run by brothers Thierry and Fabrice who represent the fourth generation. Located in Chassagne, the domaine comprises of 4 hectares of village and 4 hectare of 1er Cru vineyards as well as a row or two of Le Montrachet. Thierry uses modern techniques to make traditional styled wines respecting vintage character.
All cuvées are treated with 30% new oak for 12 months. Thierry’s wines combine richness, elegance, aromatic complexity and ageing potential. They are exemplary white wines that show a superb interplay of fruit, extract, minerality, and ultimately, great balance.
2017 is a very good vintage thanks to a constant sun that grew ripe and flavourful grapes.
