Guy Amiot et Fils
Chassagne-Montrachet, Burgundy
Wine Maker: Thierry Amiot

Another subscriber to the natural viticultural and wine-making school is fourth generation Amiot grower Thierry Amiot who is very serious about quality and committed to terroir.

First-class holdings in Chassagne-Montrachet including the Premier Cru’s Les Macherelles, La Maltroie, Les Champs-Gains, Les Vergers, and Les Caillerets. Add to this the delightful Premier Cru Puligny-Montrachet Les Damoiselles and the monumental Le Montrachet Grand Cru; this is one very serious Domaine.

Amiot crafts pure rich yet taut whites with orchard and stone fruit ripeness that display a mineral infused texture which not all Chassagne producers’ seem to manage.

The use of oak is noticeable but very classy and totally applicable to each wine’s vibrant and distinguished personality.

These are wines which give great pleasure in their youth and will develop gracefully over eight to ten years.

“One of Chassagne Montrachet’s most talented producers.” Robert Parker

“The wines from this producer give me reason to think that Guy Amiot is one of the unheralded top-rank winemakers in Chassagne Montrachet.”  Matt Kramer, ‘Making Sense of Burgundy’

“A delicious portfolio of Chassagne Premier Crus led by a tight, intense, and slowly evolving Caillerets; Amiot also has a plot of Montrachet, giving a profound, mineral-charged wine needing ten years or more to unfold.” Andrew Jefford
