The label on the bottle is inspired by the original label of Domaine Amiot designed in 1920 with the Art-Nouveau style of the Belle Époque. Bottling on the property was a rare practice because winemakers sold wine in bulk to traders but Flavie Amiot and her husband, Arsène, were pioneers of the bottling thanks to their Parisian customers.
Domaine Guy Amiot et Fils story is dating back to 1920, anchored in the village of Chassagne-Montrachet over 5 generations. The founders, Flavie and Arsène, initiated a wine vocation which was transmitted to their son Pierre, married to Simone, then to their grandson Guy Amiot. Today, it's the turn of the 2 brothers, Thierry, the winemaker, and Fabrice, the promoter, to carry this tradition. Héloise, Thierry's daughter, also has two feet in the vineyards to write the sequel.
Since 2015, our 2 special cuvées, Bourgogne Chardonnay « Cuvée Flavie » and Bourgogne Pinot Noir « Cuvée Simone », pay an eternal tribute to the 2 women in the family who played a key role in the life of the Amiot Estate : Flavie (1887-1969) founded the domain (purchase of vines, houses, education of children). Simone (1922-2009) dedicated her life to working in vines, cellar and kitchen to welcome customers and friends of wine.
From Montrachet Grand cru, renowned as « the best white wine in the world », to the appellations Village de la Côte de Beaune and chalonnaise, Guy Amiot offers an exceptional wine map which gives you great surprises.
