Domaine Antonin Guyon Appellation Map
BACKGROUND

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 by Antonin’s sons, Dominique and Michel. They produce wines of impeccable quality from 15 different appellations, which includes many renowned villages from the region. An exceptional range of Premier and Grands Crus.

WINEMAKING & VINTAGE NOTES

Volnay is located in the Côte de Beaune. Clos des Chènes is one of the most well known Premier Crus of the region located near the top of the Volnay Slope, facing due east. Soils here are predominantly limestone based and quite rocky. Grapes are hand-harvested and then carried in small boxes to the winery, where they are sorted. Fermentation takes place for 20 days in open wooden vats at a controlled temperature, with punching down. Wine is aged in French oak barrels, 40% of which are new.

TASTING NOTES

Beautiful deep ruby in color. On the nose, the wine is full of aromas of small red fruits. Racy, with a nice length in the mouth, this wine has great richness. Keep for up to 10 years. Delicious with meat in rich sauces, roast duck and most cheeses.
