CLOS DE LA CHAUME GAUFRIOT BEAUNE
Domaine Antonin Guyon
100% Pinot Noir
Domaine Antonin Guyon is one of the most prestigious estates in the Côte d’Or, as well as one of the largest family-owned wineries in the region. It was started in the 1960s by Antonin Guyon with parcels of land in Gevrey and Meursault. Today, the massive 47 hectare property
is controlled and operated today by Antonin’s sons, Dominique and Michel and produces wines of impeccable quality from 15 different appellations, which includes many renowned villages from the region. An exceptional range of Premier and Grands Crus.
This 1.9 acre monopole vineyard is located in the villages’ vineyards west of the town of Beaune. Surrounded by ancient walls built by Cistercian Monks, the soils here are predominantly limestone and clay. Grapes are hand-harvested and then carried in small boxes to the cellar, where they are sorted. Fermentation takes place for 15 days in open wooden vats at a controlled temperature with punching down. The wine is then aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 25% of which are new barrels.TASTING NOTES
A very nice ruby red with delicated aromas and a silky texture. Elegant and well-balanced with finesse, this wine can be kept for five to eight years.
Serve with roasted meats and an array of poultry dishes.
