100% Chardonnay. Vineyard Area: 0.40 hectares. Soil: Clay-limestone. Age of vine: 40 years.
The Premier Cru Les Champgains meaning « the field won over the forest » or « the field where the gain is made », this beautiful mid-slope location well exposed to the sun is a guarantee of good maturity.
Light green reflections in a bright, clear, straw yellow color. Due to its soil rich in clays and limestone, this wine has an expressive and flattering nose while rounding. The aromatic richness of the nose is confirmed by a large and creamy mouth with the characters of menthol freshness, white fruit and honeyed almond. The final is supported by the freshness of an exposure to the morning sun and the minerality of a stony soil.
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.
