Guy Amiot et Fils Chassagne Montrachet Rouge 2015
The Domaine AMIOT was created in 1920 by Arsène AMIOT, and has been handed down from father to son for four generations. The Domaine covers 12 Ha. In 1995, Thierry AMIOT, the son of Guy AMIOT began working at the Domaine after studying wine and oenology, and is today the head of the Domaine. The Domaine has the advantage of commercializing both red and white wines.
Ideally located partly in the valley of Chassagne, our plots, benefit from a rich soil made of clay and limestone.
The low altitude and the south-east sunny exposure ensure water and nutrients that produce ripe, juicy and aromatic berries.
The old age and our pruning method are one of the reasons for limiting the quantity and providing a high quality regional Chardonnay.
We provide traditional manual culture work and care to the vine from november to July: Guyot pruning, ploughing, debudding for yield control, shot knitting and only when necessary spraying against the vine diseases.
The time and care we give to the vine is key to wine quality.
First steps include crushing and fermentation in French oak barrels (1/3) and stainless steel tank (2/3). Then comes bâtonnage and natural malolactic fermentation at cellar temperature (13 to 14° C). After 12 months of ageing, the wine is pumped back to one tank for bottling preparation.
