Overview of the Wine
Since 1920, generation after generation, the Amiot family have plunged their roots in the soil and terroir of Chassagne-Montrachet. Arsène and Flavie Amiot, founders of the estate, initiated a wine vocation that has reached the 4th generation represented today by their great grandsons, Thierry and Fabrice. Guy, their father, who had given a new start to the family business since 1985, can be satisfied by the immortalization of the family tradition.
Thanks to the maintenance of the business by the family sons who follow one another at the head of the Domaine, the vineyards have remained owned by the family. This allows a more traditional viticulture, free from any speculative spirit. Planted in the years 1920-1930 for most, chardonnay and pinot noir vines allow low yields naturally. A great care is given to the vines, from pruning to harvest in order to express the true terroir identity of each plot.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Brilliant yellow gold and straw with green reflections in a bright and clear. This wine has an expressive nose of yellow fruits with a touch of vanilla. The aromatic richness of the nose is reinforced by a creamy palate with fresh flavors of apples, pear, peaches, honey and almond. The vineyard site receives full morning sun, giving a freshness and a stony, mineral foundation to the wine.
A pungent nose reflects notes of resin, white peach, petrol and rosemary oil. There is very good density to the rich and borderline opulent flavors that possess less minerality but better depth and persistence. This is a quality old vines villages and worth a look.
