Description

This remarkable pinot noir from the hills of Beaune, signed by Guillaume Guiton, has had a year of barrel aging. This gives it well balance oak tannin that gives a frame to this very balanced wine. On the nose, red fruits compliment the notes of toast. On the palate, it is all roundness and generosity. The raspberry fruit feeds on liquorice aromas. A lovely bottle, which will be aged two to four years before serving on red meats.

The Grapes are sourced from four different parcels, two in Bligny and two between Bligny and Pommard,
The wine is given 12 months in second or third use oak barrel post fermentation. 

Domaine Jean Guiton is today in the very capable hands of Jean's son, Guillaume. Guillaume joined his parents in the business in 1998 and he has been making the wines since 2003. The domaine is located a little over five kilometers south of Beaune on the west side of the RN 74 in Bligny-les-Beaune. So if you happen to find yourself in Beaune, it is an easy 5 minute drive to see Guillaume, check out the exceptionally well appointed, albeit humble, cuverie, and to experience the breadth and depth of his work. Guillaume works just over 11.5 hectares of vineyards, with Pinot Noir representing all but a little over one-half hectare. From those 11.5 hectares he makes Premiere Cru level wines from five vineyards, Village level wines from four vineyards and Regional level wines (Bourgogne, if you will) from three vineyards. The small amount of white wine that Guillaume makes comes from the Regional vineyards. In a typical vintage, Domaine Guiton will turn out around 40,000 bottles. What drew us to Guillaume's wines were the authenticity and purity. These are beautifully balanced examples that are all Burgundy.
