Another Burgundiansubscriber to natural viticulture and wine‐making is fourth generation Amiot grower Thierry Amiot who is very serious about quality and committed to terroir. First‐class holdings in Chassagne‐Montrachet including the Premier Cru’s Les Macherelles, La Maltroie, Les Champs‐Gains, Les Vergers, and Les Caillerets. Add to this the delightful Puligny‐Montrachet Premier Les Damoiselles and the monumental Le Montrachet Grand Cru; this is one very serious Domaine. The Amiot wines are rich but taut with orchard and stone fruit ripeness and display a mineral infused texture. Use of oak barely noticeable, very classy and totally applicable to each wine’s vibrant personality.
These are wines which give great pleasure in their youth and will develop gracefully over eight to ten years.
“A delicious portfolio of Chassagne Premier Crus led by a tight, intense, and slowly evolving Caillerets; Amiot also has a plot of Montrachet, giving a profound, mineral‐charged wine needing ten years or more to unfold.” Andrew Jefford
